Community Centers, Inc (CCI) received an early holiday present this week from Funky Monkey Toys & Books.

Last week the local toy store offered shoppers a 20% discount storewide and pledged to donate 10% of all sales proceeds to support CCI. Thanks to shoppers’ generosity, Jared Greenman, owner of the award-winning toy store, has announced a donation of $1,400 to the Greenwich-based social service agency dedicated to building skills that empower clients to overcome educational, social, and economic barriers.
