What is Flock-A-Friend? Flock-A-Friend is a friendly way to inspire smiles across the Quiet Corner while also supporting NOW’s mission of providing accessible youth health and wellness!
When can I Flock-A-Friend? Flock-A-Friend runs from May through mid July
Want to inspire smiles for a good cause? Flock a Friend! Make a donation to NOW and we’ll send a flock of friendly flamingos to the yard of a friend or loved one to make them smile in this time of social distancing. The best part? Your donation will also help bring smiles to lots of kids in the future, by enabling them to participate in sports clinics when life returns to normal.

We’ve made it very simple for you to help migrate a friendly flock of flamingos to your friends’ front lawn. Just visit our website and complete the flocking form – as soon as the flock is free, they’ll fly right on over!

So come on – flock a friend now and let’s all look forward to enjoying a healthy, fun future – together!

  • A $25 donation is a mini fun flock of 7 flamingos
  • A $50 donation is a small flock of 15 flamingos
  • A $75 donation is a medium flock of 30 flamingos
  • A $100 donation is a large flock of 45 flamingos

Anti-flocking insurance is available for $75 and will guarantee your yard to be free from feathered friends!

**The flock is limited to the 10-town area of Northeast CT (Brooklyn, Canterbury, Eastford, Killingly, Plainfield, Pomfret, Putnam, Sterling, Thompson, & Woodstock)**

As a Connecticut non-profit (501-c-3) organization, NOW depends on community support to provide more than 1,200 children per year with vital access to fitness, sports and nutrition resources each year – not to mention lots of friendships and FUN!

This would not be possible without the support of local businesses, organizations and community members like you! Your donation of time, funding or resources can make a real difference in the health and happiness of local children.



Since our founding in 2011, NOW has been governed by an all-volunteer board of directors from across the 10-town area of northeastern Connecticut. Our programs are made possible through their support, as well as the hard work and dedication of our executive director and program facilitators.
