Filling in the Blanks fights childhood hunger by providing children in need with meals on the weekends. In December, more than 2,200 kids in the Filling in the Blanks Weekend Meal Program will be given a brand-new backpack (valued at $40 each) filled with special items for the holidays— including a new toy, book, gloves, hat, socks, toiletries, pancake mix/syrup, etc.
From now until November 7, you can help fill these backpacks by participating in the toy drive at Westport’s The Toy Post (180 Post Rd East). Look for the FITB Toy Box, purchase a preselected toy, and add some joy to a child’s holiday this year. Thank you!
