Operation Hope is fortunate to have recently received a $25,000 grant from Fairfield County's Community Foundation (FCCF) for our Homeless Response Center (HRC).

The State of CT's new ban on single-use plastic bags goes into effect August 1. It will place a tax of 10 cents on each single-use plastic bag. So grab your reusable Stop & Shop bags AND help feed your neighbors in need. For every $2.50 bag sold through July 31 at the Villa Ave Stop & Shop (760 Villa Avenue, Fairfield, CT), $1 will be donated to Operation Hope's Food Pantry. Go green and do good!

At Operation Hope, we are grateful for the United Way of Coastal Fairfield County (UWCFC) and Cathy DeCesare, Sr. Vice President Strategic Initiatives, for all they do in our community. We were recently awarded a Neighbors Helping Neighbors grant from the UWCFC. These grants help organizations like ours provide food, shelter and basic needs to many in our community who would otherwise be homeless, hungry or simply go without.
