Members of Local 1779 of Council 4 AFSCME, representing nearly 100 Fairfield Board of Education custodial and maintenance employees, delivered toys and other gifts to the Dr. Tom Kennedy Toy Closet at Bridgeport Hospital, which provides new, age-appropriate and educational toys for pediatric patients.

In addition to the toys, Local 1779 also purchased $400 worth of CDs, DVDs and iTune gift cards to help the hospital’s youngest patients.

“I am proud to see our union members come together at a time of need to support the toy closet program,” said Jeffrey Pressler, Local 1779 vice president. “It’s always great to see children smile when receiving a gift.”
