Commitment to community. That was on full display today at our “Really Big” Food Drive. From volunteers and donors of all ages to Operation Hope employees to local elected officials, we were thrilled to see so many come out to help feed and care for our neighbors in need. The brainchild of enterprising and creative Ludlowe High School student Andrew McKinnis, the drive was also organized by Alexis Harrison, Helene Daly and Heather Dubrosky. This was the 20th drive organized by these women, many of which have benefited Operation Hope during the pandemic. We met our goal of FILLING A POD with non perishable donations PLUS $2,450 in cash donations and $790 in store gift cards. These cash donations and gift cards will help us purchase exactly what our clients need. In addition to our many generous donors and volunteers, many thanks to these folks for supporting us today:
Day in and day out, we are grateful to be part of the Fairfield community. Times are tough for everyone. But you keep finding ways to help our neighbors most in need. Thank you.
