Thursday, February 27th is Fairfield County’s Community Foundation’s 7th Annual Giving Day. Giving Day is a 24-hour on-line giving marathon that unites Fairfield County communities around local non-profit missions and causes.
Giving Day is Fairfield County’s biggest philanthropic event of the year supporting the 23 towns and cities in Fairfield County. Last year, in 2019, over $1.7 million was raised through 16,000+ gifts. Over 415 local non-profits were supported by Giving Day.
St. George Orthodox Church community has generously supported and donated to LifeBridge Community Services in the past. LifeBridge Community Services Inc. has been in continuous service to residents of Bridgeport CT since 1843. The organization’s mission is to “Partner with Bridgeport’s’ youth and families to build resilience”, helping children, families, and seniors maintain independence and receive the support they need to reach their full potential.
To achieve its mission, LifeBridge developed a Center for Youth Development which will contain the following components: The Urban Scholars Program (USP), The Family Resource Program (FRP), and the Adolescent Behavioral Health (ABH) Program.
One of our parishioners, Laura Coughlin, serves on the Board of Directors at LifeBridge. LifeBridge is very grateful to include St. George as part of their network of “Champions”. In 2019, St. George’s contributions helped LifeBridge earn the $20,000 prize for most unique donors during Giving Day.
We are asking that members of St. George continue to support LifeBridge as part of Fairfield County Community Foundation's Giving Day.
