Huntington Branch Library to Receive Special Funds

The Friends of the Shelton Libraries recently received a $3,500 grant from Newman’s Own Foundation in support of the Huntington Branch Library. We are thrilled that our branch library was recognized and supported by Newman’s Own Foundation as a worthwhile community institution. If you haven’t visited in a while, please stop by.

Newman’s Own Foundation turns all net profits and royalties from the sale of Newman’s Own products into charitable donations. To date, Paul Newman and Newman’s Own Foundation have given over $485 million to thousands of charities around the world.
