Community encouraged to perform acts of kindness in honor of Sandy Hook victims


First Selectman Michael Tetreau and Human and Social Services Director Teresa Giegengack discuss an example of an ‘Act of Kindness,’ the annual Department of Social Services’ holiday program that encourages donations that are given to Fairfield residents in need.

The town of Fairfield calls upon the community to perform acts of kindness on and around the anniversary of Sandy Hook.

The call for kindness is to honor those who lost their lives at Sandy Hook Elementary School on Dec. 14, 2012.

The Fairfield community is encouraged to post their acts of kindness on the town’s Facebook page, Fairfield residents may also help memorialize our Sandy Hook neighbors in the following ways:

• Share on the town’s Facebook page a local organization to which you donated or at which you volunteered;

• Donate to the town’s Social Services Holiday Gift Giving Program, which helps Fairfield families struggling with basic needs by calling 203-256-3166;

• Spend time with family, friends or neighbors on Dec. 14, to reflect upon making our future better and moving forward toward positive change.

“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.”
