In conjunction with Fairfield County Giving Day, FairfieldMoms wanted to highlight a few local organizations that we love and ways that you can give back to them and to our community!
Bridgeport Rescue Mission
Bridgeport Rescue Mission demonstrates compassion to hungry, homeless and addiction people throughout coastal Fairfield County 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The Mission provides a place of hope and dignity, fighting poverty from the inside out through the provision of food, emergency shelter, clothing, addiction recovery services and education to facilitate lasting life change
Clothes To Kids of Fairfield County
Clothes To Kids of Fairfield County, Inc. (CTKF) envisions a community in which every school aged child has quality clothing so that they may attend school with the confidence and self-esteem needed to achieve academic success. CTKF provides free new and gently used clothing to low-income and in-crisis kids, ages Kindergarten – 12th Grade, in Fairfield County, CT. Our unique organizational structure allows every eligible child to “shop” for their clothing. Each child receives a one hour appointment and a personal shopper to help them peruse the clothing racks and select items that they would like to try on. We envision a community in which every child has quality clothing so that they may attend school with the confidence and self-esteem needed to achieve academic success
Poverty ravages the individual and family system. Join our cause and help lessen the stress by minimizing the dollars needed for clothing but more importantly, providing a normalizing shopping experience and clothing that children can enjoy and feel good wearing.
Our mission at LIVFREE is to provide a child and their family that are battling pediatric cancer and its treatments, with an experience or event of their choosing, giving them a break from treatment to spend fun family time together.
The founders of this organization were on the front lines of pediatric cancer when their daughter was diagnosed with Leukemia in 2015. It is with this experience that LIVFREE was created. As parents of a child who fought cancer, we know how important family time is. Please know that with your help we can truly make a difference for a family that is experiencing a very difficult time. Help us meet our next goal! All donations will have a huge impact, not only for the kids fighting cancer, but their parents and siblings as well.
Please join us in supporting this cause! On Saturday, March 9, 2019 at 6PM we will be hosting the Second Annual Gala for Gold at Shorehaven Golf Club.
The evening will include a silent auction (items from many local restaurants and businesses including Lindsay Fairchild Photography, Saltwater, Pearl Street Swim, Woopa Handstich & Pure Barre Westport). Dinner, open bar & dancing to follow! The founders of the organization will be present and we hope to see you there!
