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.
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, positive manner. The program has been widely heralded for its healing 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: a Mity-Meg Rechargeable Megaphone, a Rechargeable Wireless Portable PA System, a sound equipped Modular Tabletop Lectern, and a Digital Listening Center. These versatile products will serve a variety of functions for the Healing Newtown mission.
“AmpliVox is proud to support the efforts of the NCAC and its Healing Newtown programs,” notes Don Roth, AmpliVox CEO. “It’s inspiring to see the Newtown community regain its strength after the terrible events at Sandy Hook School, and we are glad that our products will help to continue their healing process.”
