The Black Hawk is proud to be a part of the local community.
We believe in making communities and families stronger- and we think that by bringing people together, getting them outside and fishing- we're helping to do just that.
Help the local community and save money on your fishing trip at the same time!
Each month, the Black Hawk will be collecting items for various local community organization. Bring an item on the list and save money on your fishing trip.
2013 Community Programs
We are always looking for local organizations who we can partner with. We can collect items for your organization, arrange a fund-raiser trip, or donate a gift certificate for your event. Email Heather to get started!
Keep reading below to see how you can save money on your trip. Bring something different each month to help the community and save money on your trip.
We will always collect:
Box Tops for Education
Personal Care Items (soap, shampoo, etc)
Additionally, each month we collect something special for a local organization.
In May, we'll be collecting household cleaning supplies- laundry detergent, kitchen soap, sponges, etc- to be distributed through MASH .
June 2013 is SOCK MONTH! We've been told that one of the things local shelters need the most is socks for their residents. So, throughout June, we'll collect socks to distribute to local shelters and organizations. We especially need socks for adult men and women, although we'll take socks for kids too!
Believe it or not, it's almost time for Back to School! In July, we'll collect school supplies to be distributed to local children through Safe Futures (formally the Women's Center of SE CT). Were collecting in July this year so the supplies can be distributed before the kids start school in August.
We will also be accepting toys for our "Christmas in July" program. All toys will be distributed to local children during the holiday season. Help make a child's holiday brighter by donating a new, unwrapped toy when you come fish with us!
It's our birthday! In celebration of our "birthday" with the boat, we'll be collecting party supplies to be used to help provide birthday parties for kids at Waterford Country School. They're asking for wrapping paper, tape, cake mix, party favors to help give kids a way to celebrate!
In September, we'll be collecting animal supplies- treats, dog and cat food, toys, and gently used blankets or towels. Help Oscar, Flounder, and the rest of our 4 legged crew members help their friends!
In October, we'll be collecting art supplies- markers, paper, crayons, etc. to be used at local organizations that run support groups for children dealing with the loss of a loved one (Hospice and The Cove). Thanks for your support!
