WESTPORT — A group of local mothers and daughters spent last weekend helping renovate a Bridgeport agency that supports immigrant mothers and their children.

Members of the National Charity League’s Westport chapter — which unites mothers and daughters to carry out community-service projects — rehabilitated four bathrooms at Caroline House, a Bridgeport-based nonprofit that helps women, many of them immigrants, meet challenges through education in English and other life skills.

NCL’s senior class annually completes a capstone project “to provide a lasting legacy to the community,” according to NCL’s statement, adding that the Class of 2024 project “is an outstanding example of the impact the young women can have on local nonprofit organizations.”

The group had been planning renovations at Caroline House since last August as their capstone project.

Alice Anderson, a senior and NCL member for six years, as well as a volunteer tutor and camp counselor at Caroline House, said in the statement, “Working on this project was such a wonderful way for us to show our gratitude for the outstanding work at Caroline House. I hope the new renovations will bring joy to all the women and kids who spend time there.” 

Lending support to the project were contributions from the community, including by Jason Raymond of Raymond Design Builders and the Rings End/Benjamin Moore team in Westport.
