Here in Fairfield, we're a week into summer, where schools are closed. This means families who rely on school breakfast and lunch throughout the school year can really struggle to provide these extra meals for their children. Food pantry donations are even more critical during this time, to ensure our clients' children are fed. Please consider donating a bag or two of non-perishable groceries, we accept donations at 636 Old Post Rd, M-F, 9am-5pm. Thank you!
The spring diaper drive, hosted by State Reps Brenda Kupchick and Laura Devlin, runs through this Saturday! Any size and open packs accepted at Fairfield Public Library Main & Woods Branch, Pequot Library, St. Paul's Nursery School and A Child's Garden through June 19. The drive concludes June 22, 1-3pm at Saugatuck Sweets Fairfield - bring a donation if you can!
Did you know disposable diapers can cost $70 to $80 per month per baby? And that no state or federal child safety-net program allocates dollars specifically for the purchase of diapers. It's no surprise that 1 in 3 U.S. families struggles to provide enough diapers to keep a baby or toddler clean, dry and healthy. Please help us fill this need for our clients by donating diapers to the spring diaper drive hosted by State Reps Brenda Kupchick and Laura Devlin.

Held last Saturday, the National Association of Letter Carriers' annual "Stamp Out Hunger" food drive is the largest, nationally-held food drive, and locally, we were honored to once again be the recipient of the donations. With the support of dozens of Fairfield and Southport letter carriers who volunteered to pick up donations at residents' mailboxes, volunteers and countless donors, we collected and sorted 15,699 lbs (or 7.8 tons!) of non-perishables to help stock our Food Pantry.
TOMORROW, SATURDAY, MAY 11, rain or shine! Please leave a bag of groceries by your mailbox for the annual National Association of Letter Carriers Stamp Out Hunger food drive to help stock Operation Hope's Food Pantry.
