Children's Community School (CCS) Waterbury, CT

The holidays present a wonderful time to give hope and joy to others. Our families are, by definition, some of the neediest in Waterbury, so your generosity is deeply appreciated.

Since it helps to know what will really "go the mile" for our children, we have put together this page to help you choose what is most appropriate for our students.


1. They need clothes. In particular, they need uniforms, which can be expensive and are quickly outgrown. Shirts and other embroidered pieces come from Dennis Uniforms (http://www.dennisuniform.com). Black pants, skirts, skorts, and shoes can be purchased anywhere. Sizes correspond to ages 5 through 12. They also need outergarments for colder weather: hats, scarves, mittens, and coats are deeply appreciated.

2. They want books. Please see the list to the right.

3. They want opportunities. Field trips, new textbooks, science supplies, and so on. A wonderful, exciting education requires so many elements. We have listed five different possibilities in our CCS Store. Please take a look and see if something is to your liking. If not, consider contacting us to schedule a chat.

On behalf of all our students, thank you!
