Dear Connecticut Crayon Family and Friends, it is with mixed emotions that we are announcing that the Christensen Family will be relocating to Minnesota this summer. It is our hope that we can find a few volunteers to continue to manage Crayons for Cancer in Connecticut. As usual, all funds raised in Connecticut will stay in Connecticut. If you are interested please drop us a note.
We are looking forward to growing our Minnesota Crayon Crew in the coming year!
A HUGE shout out to our Colchester, CT friends for their successful crayon selling weekend!!! They made $170+ for the oncology family's at CT Children's Medical Center. Many lives and hearts will be touched.
