Fairfield County’s Giving Day

Published: February 7, 2018

To the Editor:

As you may know, March 1 is our region’s biggest charitable event of the year — Fairfield County’s Giving Day. Last year, over 13,000 donors raised almost $1.5 million for 414 local nonprofits. Spearheaded by Fairfield County’s Community Foundation, Giving Day encourages individuals, families, companies, clubs, and groups to “give where you live.” Bank of America is the lead sponsor for the fourth year.

As a member of two boards, Edmond Town Hall (Mary Hawley Society) and Merryhill Child Care Center in Newtown, I encourage everyone age 18+ to visit FCGives.org throughout March 1 and give to any of the registered nonprofits — including ours. You can donate as little as $10. Each donation adds up, plus can help nonprofits win additional cash prizes. Funds raised for ETH will go toward bringing live entertainment to the theater, while funds raised for Merryhill will go to enrichment programs for our kids.

Kind Regards,
Jennifer Guman, President of Merryhill Child Care Center board
