Westport Make A Difference Day

October 1 - 31, 2020

"Wherever there is a human being, there is an opportunity
for kindness" - Seneca

Let’s All Make A Difference Today! The Family and Children’s Agency requested help getting food and diapers to their clients in need. During this challenging time of Covid-19 this has become a dire situation for people already struggling. They asked for gift cards from Stop and Shop and Shoprite be donated in $20-25 amounts to give these families the flexibility to purchase what they need.

There are two ways to donate:

  1. Through this link, you can make a monetary contribution. https://secure.acceptiva.com/?cst=qvPdAv

 

  1. Purchase a gift card the next time you are shopping and drop it off at Saugatuck Sweets in Westport (575 Riverside Ave, Westport, CT 06880) or Fairfield (28 Reef Rd, Fairfield, CT 06824).

How we began

Philosophy

Our Work

Get in touch

Make A Difference Day is a national day of service on the fourth Saturday of Each October.  It encourages individuals and organizations to help others in need and make a difference in their lives.  One can lend a helping hand to an individual, family, a cause, and particularly a neighbor through organized projects.

We want to teach our children by example that volunteering one's time is not only helpful but fun and more importantly, rewarding.  By engaging the Town of Westport through various project types, we have been able to foster and cultivate an enthusiastic community every October.

Westport Make A Difference Day works with a variety of non for profit organizations in lower Fairfield County to identify a need and create projects for our volunteers, both young and old.

If you would like to create your own project, or volunteer, Westport's Make A Difference Day can be reached via email at makadif@aol.com or by mail at:

110 Myrtle Avenue
