Letter: Giving Day is next Thursday

To the Editors:

Next Thursday, March 10, is a day to support your favorite nonprofit organization. That day is Fairfield County’s Community Foundation’s Giving Day. Many of Wilton’s nonprofit organizations are participating. All you need to do is go to www.fcgives.org, select the desired charity, and use your credit card to charge your contribution.

FCCF has been offering this one-day opportunity to support your local charities for three years. Last year, they raised more than $1 million. Of course, we hope you will select Stay at Home in Wilton where your donation helps us keep Wilton seniors in the homes they love. You can also go to our website, www.stayathomeinwilton.org, and click on the link for Giving Day.

Regardless of which charity you want to support, please mark your calendar for Thursday, March 10. Any time during the 24-hour period, the Giving Day center will be open to accept your tax-deductible contribution. If you are a night owl, contributions will start being accepted right after midnight. Thanks for your support.

Board Chairman, Stay at Home in Wilton
