5 Ways to Help Local Food Banks this Thanksgiving in the Stamford Area

21 Nov

While our blog focuses on the best places to eat, great beer, and fun experiences here in CT, we also like to help give back any way that we can. And, because you are all so freaking awesome, we’re sure you feel the same kinda way that we do. You want to be able to help out people in need. So, we’ve compiled four ways for you to get involved and help local food banks this holiday season. But, please, remember that the need for support is year-long and these organizations can always use your support.

1) If you’re already heading to The Palace in Stamford this weekend to see The Four Freshmen or Warren Miller Entertainment, just bring some cans to help families have a good meal for Thanksgiving. Non-perishable items will be donated to The Food Bank of Lower Fairfield County.

In a few weeks on December 13, we have a good hunch where you’ll be: at the inaugural BeerConn at the Webster Bank Arena in Bridgeport.
