Gov.-elect Ned Lamont visits nonprofits on 'day of service'
Gov.-elect Ned Lamont traveled across Connecticut Sunday to bring attention to nonprofits that help those in need.
Lamont's first stop was at the New Covenant Center in Stamford. Lamont and Lt. Gov.-Elect Susan Bysiewicz kicked off their morning learning about the center's mission, services and needs.
Then they got their hands dirty, suiting up with aprons and hair nets to help volunteers prepare Sunday lunch.
They learned more about how the New Covenant Center is able to serve over 600,000 meals each year and how elected officials can help further their reach
By shining a light on local nonprofits, Lamont and Bysiewicz hope to encourage people to join the effort by donating their time, money, or food
Lamont and Bysiewicz also visited Homes for the Brave in Bridgeport and the Beth-El Center in Milford.
Lamont will be sworn in on Jan. 9.
