HELP US BRING HOPE FOR THE HOLIDAYS FOR PEOPLE IN NEED

Would you like to brighten the holidays for someone in need?  Operation Hope’s annual Holiday Project “Hope for the Holidays” wants your help!  Many families in the Greater Bridgeport area struggle daily to provide basic needs for their families. The Operation Hope Holiday Project identifies close to 300 people in need of basic items each year.  By “adopting” a family or individual, you can purchase items from a wish list completed by each of the men, women, and children served by Operation Hope.  General donations and gift cards to local stores are also welcome.   Please join the many individuals, families, civic groups and businesses that have helped us supply thousands of gifts in the past.  We are in need of on-site volunteers to help with receiving and organizing gifts, starting December 8 through December 11.  If you are interested in participating or have any questions, please email Evie Angel at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Volunteers Needed for Food Drive Saturday afternoon, May 11, 2013 

Fairfield Theatre Company, Sanford Drive, Fairfield 

Volunteers needed for unloading and sorting donations from the Annual Food Drive from the US Postal Carriers to support Operation Hope of Fairfield.

Volunteers needed from 2:30 PM to 7:00 PM. Any amount of time appreciated!

This is an event that can include all family members, however, it can be very chaotic with many mail trucks arriving and leaving so we do ask that parents of young children work side by side with them at all times.
