LETTER: Donate to local nonprofits on Giving Day

Letter-to-the-EditorNEWTo the Editor:

March 10 is our region’s biggest charitable event of the year, Fairfield County’s Giving Day. The goal is to raise awareness of nonprofit organizations and to raise money in 24 hours through online donations to 400 local nonprofits.

As Executive Director of Pequot Library in the Southport section of Fairfield, I encourage everyone age 18+ to visit FCGives.org throughout March 10 and give to any of the registered nonprofits —including ours! Pequot Library stays open and “free as air to all” through donations like yours. We hope to raise $10,000 which will go directly to the purchase of books, movies, technology, and to the support our 750 annual programs for all ages — author visits, movies, storytimes for kids, music, viewing of rare books from our Special Collections, art exhibitions, huge town-wide community events, and so much more. Last year we welcomed over 103,000 visitors to Pequot Library!

You can select nonprofits by town, cause, or name, and donate as little as $10. Every donation adds up. Giving Day encourages every community member to “give where you live.” Bank of America is the lead sponsor.

Please remember to visit FCGives.org on March 10 and give to your favorite local nonprofits.
