“Every dollar donated to Acts 4 will be eligible to be enhanced with bonus funds donated to our non-profit organization by the Connecticut Community Foundation (CCF) and their sponsors. The more donations Acts 4 Ministry receives, the more our organization will also be eligible to win bonus cash prizes,” stated Sarah Elizabeth Carabetta, executive director of Acts 4 Ministry, Inc.
