JANUARY DONATION DRIVE – PERSON-TO-PERSON
Person-to-Person is a non-profit organization that provides individuals and families with food, clothing, emergency financial assistance, caseworker support as well as a program for mentorships and scholarships for residents in lower Fairfield county. Food insecurity rates have more than doubled in CT due to the pandemic and Person-to-Person has been providing critical food assistance during these challenging times.
They are in need of diapers, sizes 3, 4, 5 and 6, as well as the following non-perishable food items: cereal, oatmeal, macaroni and cheese, canned tuna/chicken and jelly.
Please drop off your donated items anytime between now and Sunday, January 24 to 6 Peach Lot Place. Items can be placed in the bin at the front door. Include your SLOBs name on your donation or write it on the sign-up sheet located next to the donation bin. Any questions, please contact Penny, Alex or Nicholas Miller at firstname.lastname@example.org.
