Weston Education Foundation Coat Drive Announced

On Friday, November 16th, the Weston Education Foundation (“WEF”) kicked off a Coat Drive to benefit Person to Person (“P2P”) in Norwalk. WEF is a local 501(c)(3) educational foundation that supports educational initiatives in the Weston schools and community.

P2P provides local individuals and families with food, clothing, housing, financial assistance and on-going support.

  • Each month, at P2P’s Norwalk location alone, 700-800 families come for food, clothing and other basic needs.
  • Last year, because of the generosity of people throughout the community, P2P was able to help 23,267 men, women and children in Norwalk and surrounding towns, including Weston.

Please consider donating any new or gently-used coats, jackets, hats, scarves, gloves – anything that might help someone of any age stay warm this winter.

Collection bins are located in Weston through Sunday, December 16 at Fairfield County Bank, Peter’s Liquors, Lang’s Pharmacy, and all four schools.

Thank you in advance for your acts of kindness. It takes a village!
