Fairfield teens Grace Kenney and Vicky Sgaglione created “Birdhouses for the Homeless” to spread awareness and help solve one of the problems Fairfield County faces, homelessness. There are thousands of individuals and families in shelter at any time, and hundreds more living without shelter in Connecticut. When Grace and Vicky heard about this, they became determined to do something to help solve this problem. The girls sell decorated birdhouses, with the proceeds donated to Operation Hope. In 2019, the girls raised $355 for Operation Hope. However, this summer, the girls came up with a fun idea knowing so many people were staying home due to the COVID-19 pandemic. They decided to sell paint your own birdhouse kits and set a goal of raising $1,000. Grace and Vicky, along with little sister Maeve Kenney, surpassed their goal and raised $1,100! Wow! Thank you, Grace, Vicky and Maeve. Not only did you inspire creativity but you inspire hope for our neighbors in need.
