By Stamford's North Hamlethub
Prizes, giveaways, kids' activities, free flu shots, live Q&A with an Immigration Legal Services Director, B1C programs, and services introduction were just a few great reasons to visit Building One Community and its partners on a beautiful sunny September day.
Hundreds of community members visited Building One Community (B1C) this past Sunday for its first Community Day Event. A gathering intended to celebrate neighbors and introduce prospective and current participants to Building One Community, The Center for Immigrant Opportunity.
Partners of B1C also joined the festivities. Americares and Walgreens provided free flu shots for adults. Person to Person brought their mobile pantry. The Stamford Police Department brought their K-9 units and their Bomb Squad mobile. Child Guidance Center offered community resources and played games. Bank of America had special new account offers. Private and public high school volunteer groups from King School, Greenwich Country, and Stamford High School helped with games, snacks, set up, and photography.
"We were thrilled to have a robust influx of visitors all day. We have just settled into a new flagship location in the Shippan area, and it was a wonderful way to introduce the community to our organization alongside our partners," said Anka Badurina, Ph.D., Executive Director of Building One Community.
