Greenwich Police Escorts Abilis “Care-avan” to Unfold Like to Abilis Residents throughout Pandemic

The Greenwich Junior United Way wanted to spread the love of Abilis residents who had fewer social interactions over the past year due to Covid-19 restrictions and precautions to keep residents safe.

This “Care-Avan” was accompanied by a police escort from Greenwich and visited eight Abilis homes across Greenwich. He stopped by every house and presented the residents with a gift basket and flowers to brighten their day.
