(Norwalk ACTS)

Anthony Allison

Anthony Allison is the executive director of Norwalk ACTS.

In celebration of Youth Art Month, one of this week’s Shout Outs goes to the talented student artists featured in the 2018 Norwalk Housing Authority’s annual calendar. The project is a collaboration between the NHA Learning Center, the Norwalk Public Housing residents and their families and partner schools, which aims to infuse art and enrichment opportunities into the lives of our city’s children living in public housing.  

Shout Out to Stepping Stones Museum for Children for organizing a Get One, Give One Membership Drive to benefit deserving families in lower Fairfield County. The December promotion resulted in 475 matching memberships for families utilizing Person-to-Person services. With locations in Norwalk and Darien, Person-to-Person provides emergency assistance for basic needs plus other support to individuals and families as they move toward financial stability.

“Thanks to the two for one membership drive, families will be able to access the wonderful offerings of the Museum and enjoy an exciting and engaging learning environment with their children,” said Ceci Maher, Executive Director of Person-to-Person and member of Norwalk ACTS’ Board of Directors.

About this site

NancyOnNorwwalk.com was conceived as the place to go for Norwalk residents to get the real, unvarnished story about what is going on in and around their city. NancyOnNorwalk does not intend to be a print newspaper online; rather, it exists to pull the curtain back and shine a spotlight on how Norwalk is run and what is happening regarding issues that have an impact on taxpayers’ pocketbooks and safety. As an independent site, NancyOnNorwalk’s first and only allegiance is to the reader.
