A mother of five girls, Tina Garrity finds her own happiness in volunteering. Among the many organizations for which she volunteers are Circle of Care, the Madison Selectman’s Council on Youth Substance Abuse, the Children’s Center in Hamden, the Hospital of St. Raphael and Yale-New Haven Hospital. She has held leadership positions on practically all of the committees on which she’s served. She is also the founder of the Madison Happiness Club, which aims to enable people to find the positive in their lives. One of her biggest projects is running Circle of Care’s Art from the Heart program, which makes over a room for a child undergoing chemotherapy. Tina works with local high school students and area professionals to make this happen. In addition, she organized and runs a knitting group at the Hearth at Tuxis Pond.
