The Darien Department of Human Services is holding a Thanksgiving Grocery Store Gift Card Drive.
— an announcement from Darien Department of Human Services
Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, food insecurity has become more and more prevalent in our area. With food prices increasing, it is getting difficult for some of our neighbors to put food on the table.
The food drive takes place from Monday, Nov. 1, through Tuesday, Nov. 23.
The department will be collecting gift cards to local grocery stores (Stop & Shop, Palmer’s, ShopRite, Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods) and distributing them to Darien families and seniors in need.
With your support, we can help make the holidays a little happier for those who need it most.
If You’re Joining in …
Residents are asked to drop off the gift cards at Town Hall or mail them to: Darien Human Services at 2 Renshaw Road. Town Hall hours are Mondays through Thursdays, 8 a.m. to 5:15 p.m. (and closed on Fridays).
Please contact our office at 203-656-7328 with any questions.
