We would like to thank our friends at Northwest Community Bank and its subsidiaries Collinsville Bank and Litchfield Bancorp! With this most recent gift, we celebrate 8 years of continuous giving to KidsPlay. They have been instrumental in supporting the Museum.
Northwest Community Bank has recently invested in KidsPlay Children’s Museum’s Facility and Facade Upgrades for Energy Conservation, a 2021 Connecticut Neighborhood Assistance Act approved program.
This year’s project's primary focus continues to be the renovation and integration of 57 Main Street (the former Salvation Army Family Thrift Shop) into the Museum's galleries. When complete, we will have increased gallery space by 60%, allowing us to impact even more children and contribute to the economic redevelopment of Torrington as a center for arts, culture, and education. The new space will increase the number of patrons we can safely serve, bringing much-needed vitality to downtown Torrington as we emerge from the pandemic.
Collinsville Bank, Litchfield Bancorp and Northwest Community Bank — the three banks of the Connecticut Mutual Holding Company — have collaborated as one bank, under one charter as Northwest Community Bank.
