NORWALK, CT - On Nov. 21, the Junior Board of Directors at Family & Children’s Agency (FCA) hosted A Taste of Fairfield County at Aitoro Appliances to benefit Homeless Services. In addition to great food, live music and raffles, guests were able to hear from Homeless Services staff members about the work they do and the struggles their clients face. Many guests also donated nonperishable food items for clients. Nearly 140 guests came out to support the Agency and over $8,000 was raised to support the Agency’s Homeless Services.

“A Taste of Fairfield County was a great success, and we are extremely appreciative of all the hard work from our Junior Board of Directors in organizing this event,” said Robert F. Cashel, President & CEO of FCA. “The holidays are fast approaching, and this event was a reminder to many that as we gather around our table with family and friends, we should also give back to those who may be less fortunate.”

Five chefs, A Dash of Salt Catering, Cappriccio Café, Jeff’s BBQ & Catering, The Kiddie Kitchen and Paella, prepared food in the kitchens of Aitoro Appliances. The Brownie Factory, DiMare Pastry Shop, Diageo, Norwalk Community College and The Village Market also donated food and beverages, and FactSet Research Systems was a sponsor.

Please visit the Agency’s website to view pictures from the evening and the full list of sponsors and raffle donors.

Since 1986, Homeless Services at FCA has provided a continuum of care for adults and families experiencing homelessness. FCA offers homeless support and prevention programs including the Community Connections Center, Supportive Housing, and vocational skills and case management services.
