In memory of a beloved TBS member, Diane Kaplan, the TBS Social Action committee is supporting the Connecticut Food Bank/Foodshare 5K Race Against Hunger walk, April 5-April 11, 2021.

Diane was an ardent supporter of the Connecticut Food Bank Race and in her memory the TBS Social Action Committee has made an initial donation of $200 to get TBS started.

The Social Action Committee has set a goal for 2021 of $1800. Please support this important cause as poverty and the pandemic continues to impact the less fortunate of our community.
