Community is not Canceled: Westport Rainbows Bring Hope and Joy

Community is not Canceled 

Neighbors helping neighbors, community members reaching out to our local senior citizens, residents supporting our heroic first responders -the inspiring stories and acts of kindness brought forth by our current crisis are extraordinary. What's more, small businesses, local nonprofits, and civic organizations are innovating to stay connected and serve the community. 

Community is not Canceled, a series made possible by LIFEWTR will showcase Connecticut's awesome response to this unprecedented situation. We are in this together. Stay strong. 

Somewhere Over the Rainbow in Westport

A Westport resident took it upon herself to kickstart a creative initiative to unite the community and lift spirits during this uncertain time. “Rainbows Across America” is brightening Westport neighborhoods, one colorful rainbow at a time. 

Westporters responded with enthusiasm and got busy with their kid's drawing, painting, and making rainbow chains out of paper. Residents are encouraged to go on “Rainbow Hunts”, (counting rainbows, not thunderstorms) in their neighborhood and community. 

Westport joins communities across the globe turning to art and creativity to bring locals closer together one rainbow at a time. 

Community is not Canceled! We are thankful to LIFEWTR for helping us to connect and stay strong.
