Greater Newington Charitable Society made its first donation to Capitol Squash, which is an organization that fosters athletics and academics for 50 inner city Hartford children who participate year round.
Each student must apply and their families are interviewed. The students meet at Trinity College where they have squash practice for one hour followed by 45 minutes of homework and tutoring. "The Capitol Squash Program aligns nicely with GNCS' goal of helping youth," commented GNCS member Gary Toubman.

The first ‘official’ meeting of the Greater Newington Charitable Society (GNCS) was held on September 14th, 2016 at Rooster Company on Main street in Newington, Connecticut. All charter members were in attendance: Fred Googel, Joane London, Tim Luddy, Jackie Martin, Ron and Melanie Tregoning with the exception of Gary Toubman and Russ London.
GNCS was formed to help youth and veterans in Newington and its surrounding towns to reach their potential and to foster volunteerism.
Meetings are held monthly; usually at noon on the second Wednesday on each month.
