Hilltown Families and Mass Appeal (a weekday, hour-long lifestyle program on NBC) have teamed up to offer a live monthly segment on WWLP 22News! Each month, community-based education specialist and Hilltown Families’ Founder, Sienna Wildfield, joins Mass Appeal hosts to talk about ways to engage in your community while supporting the interests and education of your children (and yourselves!).
This monthly segment continued on Monday, June 24, 2019, with Sienna and Danny talking about hos Independence Day can support both interests and education as well as strengthening civic pride and a sense of place.
Lend a hand to show love for the Connecticut River! The Connecticut River Watershed Council’s annual Source to Sea Cleanup takes place on September 26th and 27th, mobilizing volunteers of all ages to help clean up the banks of the Connecticut River and the streams, rivers, lakes, and ponds that make up its watershed. Families can participate by joining in on a preexisting cleanup event, or by scouting locations in need of cleaning before the event takes place. Engaging in community service helps kids learn how to give back to their community and to their environment, and helping to preserve a natural resource will help them learn to appreciate their surroundings!
