Dear New Canaan Cares Community:
We are in a very unique time right now.  We hope everyone is staying safe and following protocol to get us all out on the fields soon.  New Canaan Cares is partnering with 84 Sports and The New Canaan Community Foundation through a t-shirt sale WE ARE #NCUNITE. Every t-shirt sold will provide $10 to The New Canaan Community Foundation directly in order for them to support our local business community.  A lot of these businesses are our sponsors and support us and we in turn are now hoping to support them.  Please click HERE to purchase shirts. If any additional questions please reach out directly to Mitch Hoffman at 203.966.1984 or All shirts can either be delivered locally or available for curbside.  The store will close Sunday April 4th.
