Random Acts of Kindness in CT During the Dark Days of a Pandemic
The following stories are about CT residents who are helping out during this hideous pandemic.
This past Wednesday, April 8, Allam drove up north to Danbury where he dropped off dozens of meals to Danbury's emergency homeless shelter thanks to a partnership with Operation Hope in Fairfield.
Food Rescue in Connecticut is a volunteer-driven organization that picks up perfectly good food from restaurants and grocers that would have been thrown away. Their motto is 'Fill Plates, Not Landfills.' If you would like to volunteer, call 800-280-3298. Images
I just found out via the Newstimes that Escape Salon in Bethel has created care packages and collected thousands of supplies for health care workers on the front lines. They are encouraging other businesses like hair and nail salons to join the cause by dropping off what they can. To arrange dropoff or pickup, call 203-798-9882.
I'm also happy to report that Faith Church in New Milford gave out 350 free meals to area residents this past Wednesday. Their 'Manna From Heaven' program will continue next Wednesday, April 15 from 4 to 6 pm and every Wednesday through May.
