A Day To Give

To the Editor:

March 1 is our region's biggest charitable event of the year - Fairfield County's Giving Day. Last year, over 13,000 donors raised almost $1.5 million for 414 local nonprofits. Spearheaded by Fairfield County's Community Foundation, Giving Day encourages individuals, families, companies, clubs, and groups to "give where you live." Bank of America is the lead sponsor for the fourth year.

As center director of Merryhill Child Care Center, Inc, here in Newtown, I encourage everyone over 18 years old to visit FCGives.org anytime on March 1 and donate to any of the registered nonprofits, including ours.

You can donate as little as $10. Each donation adds up and can also help nonprofits win additional cash prizes. Funds raised for Merryhill will go toward enrichment programs and classroom equipment for our children. Please set a reminder to visit FCGives.org on March 1 and give to your favorite local nonprofit.
