The announcement of the grant was made on October 16 by NPC Founder Dorrie Carolan; Harry Carey, director of external affairs, AT&T; Newtown First Selectman Daniel Rosenthal, and State Senator Tony Hwang. The four sat down at NPC’s headquarters to discuss the grant early that Tuesday afternoon, having just returned from Fairfield, where they visited a second location that will be utilized by NPC.
The grant, Mr Carey explained, is a way for the large corporation to feel a vested interested in the communities it serves and where its employees also reside.
“We want to be in touch with our customers,” Mr Carey explained. “We live here, too, and we’re looking for organizations that make an impact. It’s very easy to talk about certain problems that affect people, but to really be close to the people who are suffering and need help is really at the heart of what this grant is.

Former Newtown Rotary President and local Legislative Councilman Joe Hemingway has come full circle in his relationship with The Newtown Parent Connection (NPC).
A long-time volunteer with the NPC board before departing to explore other service opportunities, Mr Hemingway was recently named the local human services nonprofit’s new board chairman according, to founder Dorrie Carolan.
Ms Carolan and Mr Hemingway recently met with The Newtown Bee and expressed hopeful anticipation for what is shaping up to be a busy year for the organization — both in terms of supporting local families and educating the entire community about preventing substance abuse and addiction.
