Social agency awarded $25,000 grant

The Walmart Foundation has given Person-to-Person (P2P) a $25,000 grant in support of the agency’s Emergency Assistance Program.

According to P2P Executive Director Ceci Maher, this funding will be used to help families overcome food insecurity and work towards self-sufficiency.

“With more than 5,000 children served annually by the P2P food pantries, this grant provides substantial support for our efforts to fight hunger and the negative effect that food insecurity has on the emotional, social and educational development of children.”

Person-to-Person provides low-income individuals and families living in lower Fairfield County with basic emergency services. Its service area includes Darien, New Canaan, Norwalk, Stamford, Weston, Westport and Wilton.
