As part of its ongoing Community Connection Donation Program, AmpliVox Sound Systems has donated a variety of its top-rated products to the Healing Newtown program in Newtown, Connecticut. This innovative grassroots program seeks to help the residents of Newtown recover from the trauma of the Sandy Hook Elementary School mass shooting in 2012.
Susan Marcinek, Executive Assistant for Newtown’s first Selectman Patricia Llodra, and Robert Rabinowitz, Secretary for the Newtown Cultural Arts Commission, with the AmpliVox Modular Tabletop Lectern.
Shortly after the events at Sandy Hook, the Newtown Cultural Arts Commission (NCAC) created “Healing Newtown Through the Power of the Arts,” a program that encompasses arts space, classes, workshops, performances, art and music therapy, and special community events.
Run by the Town of Newtown through the NCAC and in association with the Connecticut Office of the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts, Healing Newtown provides these services to help the community move past the tragedy in a healthy, healing manner.
The program has been widely heralded for its positive impact, and was singled out in 2013 for a Governor’s Arts Award in recognition of the extraordinary service it provided.
NCAC officials approached AmpliVox with a request for sound equipment to support its many public events and educational programs. AmpliVox responded with a number of its signature products:
