Connecticut Sun Basketball Clinics
The Connecticut Sun is committed to taking an active interest in the well-being of our community. We strive to empower those around us through athletic, educational and empowering endeavors.
Connecticut Sun and Jordan’s Furniture launched a series of free basketball clinics for girls throughout the year. Both organizations want to inspire girls around Connecticut to use their talent and their voices to achieve their goals.
On Nov. 10-11, the Connecticut Sun hosted the Connecticut Sun Basketball Coaches Clinic and the Connecticut Sun Basketball Skills Clinic presented by Post University.
Post University in sponsoring this event, designed 10 scholarships for young women without the means to attend the Connecticut Sun Basketball Skills Clinic.
ABOUT JORDAN’S FURNITURE:
Philanthropy is an important part of the business philosophy here at Jordan’s Furniture. From the beginning, when brothers Barry and Eliot were working for the family business, and continuing today, with Eliot still at the helm, community outreach is part of our plan.
Our philanthropic efforts focus on children in need, primarily within the adoption and foster care communities. In addition, we participate in and donate to many non-profit organizations and charity projects from community project sponsorships to local fundraising programs.
The charity programs and projects are rewarding investments. An example of the success born from Jordan’s corporate giving is the fact that approximately 300 children in foster care have found permanent adoptive families. In addition, over 800 new foster homes have been recruited through our projects.
ABOUT POST UNIVERSITY:
Based in Waterbury, Connecticut, since 1890, Post University is known for its focus on providing online and on-campus students an extraordinary educational experience with a level of personalized support that addresses their needs. Among the first in the nation and the first in the state of Connecticut to offer full degrees online, Post works with students to assist them with meeting their personal aspirations and career goals.
Post University accomplishes this by providing students with their own academic counselors who assist them during their time of enrollment and provide information on the variety of support services available to students and programming options in a variety of career areas. Many programs have minors and areas of concentration that allow students to focus on career areas that are of specific interest to them.
Post University is dedicated to supporting the community where our students and associates work, study and play. Each year, we support a wide variety of organizations that make a difference in the lives of others. Our community relations activities fulfill the University’s commitment to the common good in the greater Waterbury region.
