Helping Neighbors in Need This Holiday

Every year, through The Giving Fund, the Post and the Hour newspapers, help readers in Bridgeport and Norwalk provide a helping hand to local neighbors who are struggling during the holiday season. Over the next 10 weeks, stories will be shared from LifeBridge Community Services in Bridgeport, and from Family and Children’s Agency in Norwalk of neighbors in need. In turn, neighbors who are interested in donating, either to the fund or a specific case/story will be able to do so, through United Way of Coastal Fairfield County.

Each Thursday from Thanksgiving to New Years, respective Hearst Media Newspapers will run the 10 stories both in the print and electronic editions. The stories include an estimated dollar amount that would help the featured clients face everyday challenges like rent payments, child care costs and transportation. Every dollar donated to The Giving Fund goes directly to the clients in need.

There are two ways to give to The Giving Fund:

* If you would like to assist a neighbor in Bridgeport: https://www.unitedwaycfc.com/givingctpost

* Or if you'd like to assist a neighbor in Norwalk: https://www.unitedwaycfc.com/givingthehour.
