First Selectman Mike Tetreau is calling on the Fairfield community to perform acts of kindness on and around the anniversary of Sandy Hook —  Sunday, Dec. 14 — to honor those who lost their lives at Sandy Hook Elementary School on that date in 2012.

Tetreau is further encouraging Fairfielders to post their acts of kindness on the town’s Facebook page, www.facebook.com/fairfieldct.

The First Selectman’s office suggested the following as possible acts of kindness for the Sandy Hook anniversary:
• post the name of  a local organization you donated to or volunteered for on the town’s Facebook page;
• donate to the town’s Social Services Holiday Gift Giving Program, which helps Fairfield families struggling with basic needs, by calling 254-4538; or
• spend time with family, friends or neighbors on Sunday, Dec. 14 to reflect on making our future better.

Tetreau said, “The Town of Fairfield continues to unite with Newtown and show our community’s strong support and solidarity by encouraging residents to perform acts of kindness. In support of our neighbors in Newtown, we encourage the Fairfield Community to spread goodwill to one another so that together, we can each make a difference in moving toward positive change.”

Anyone interested in donating for the holidays this year can contact Alicia Condon, Social Worker, at 203-254-4538 or [email protected]

The gift distribution is set for the second week in December.
