Let’s All Make A Difference! 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.


   2. 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).
