FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
RE: MEMORIAL DAY PARADE DONATIONS FOR HOMES FOR THE BRAVE
On Monday, May 28th, The Fairfield Rotary Club will have a truck preceding the start of the Memorial Day Parade in Fairfield, collecting non perishable items to be donated to the “Homes For The Brave” in Bridgeport. There will be marchers walking along the parade route collecting items which can include canned goods, coffee, powder creamers, twin size sheets, pillows, towels and any toiletries. For a full list of requested items, go to www.homesforthebrave.org. For late comers, the truck will also pass through the parade route at the very end of the parade.
Since opening its doors in 2002, ABRI/Homes for the Brave has provided safe housing, vocational training and job placement, case management services, and life skills coaching to help individuals, especially Veterans, leave homelessness behind. To date, the organization has worked with more than 730 individuals.
Please remember to bring whatever items you can and make this a memorable day for our veterans.
