Our deepest thanks to Stop & Shop for its recent donation of $1,000! The Villa Ave store in Fairfield donated its $1,000 retailer selling bonus from the sale of a $100,000 Cash5 lottery ticket from the June 25 drawing to Operation Hope. The donation helps fund our work to end hunger and provide homelessness outreach, case management, shelter diversion and other services for people experiencing homelessness in Fairfield County. The care and compassion the Villa Ave Stop & Shop shows our neighbors in need is greatly appreciated. Read the article here.
