Join the Bridgeport Rescue Mission for a Fun-filled Community Block Party at Went Field Park!

Bridgeport, CT. August 3, 2023— The Bridgeport Rescue Mission is excited to announce its upcoming Community Block Party, scheduled to take place on August 5, from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM, at Went Field Park in Bridgeport. This event promises to be an unforgettable day of festivities, complete with free school supplies, delicious food from a food truck, face painting, live music, engaging games, and access to essential community resources.

The Bridgeport Rescue Mission has been dedicated to serving the local community for over 30 years, offering support and assistance to those in need. The Community Block Party is one of the many ways the organization gives back to the community, fostering a sense of unity, joy, and hope for all attendees.

One of the highlights of this event is the Free School Supplies Giveaway, where families and students can obtain the necessary tools to start the upcoming school year on the right foot. With the rising costs of education, the Bridgeport Rescue Mission aims to ease the financial burden faced by families and provide children with the supplies they need to succeed academically.

But that's not all! Attendees will also be served from our food truck serving up delicious meals and snacks throughout the day. From mouth-watering treats to refreshing beverages, there's something for every palate.

Children will have a blast at the event, as professional face painters will be on hand to transform their faces into their favorite characters and designs. Alongside this, there will be an array of exciting games and activities, promising endless fun and laughter for the whole family.

Throughout the day, the Community Block Party will resonate with the rhythm of live music, enhancing the festive atmosphere and encouraging everyone to let loose and enjoy the day to the fullest.

Additionally, the event will serve as a valuable platform to connect the community with essential resources. Representatives from various local organizations will be present, offering information and assistance on healthcare, education, job opportunities, housing, and more. This effort is part of the Bridgeport Rescue Mission's commitment to uplifting the community and supporting its residents in times of need.

"We are thrilled to host this year's Community Block Party at Went Field Park," said Larry Fullerton, Executive Director of Bridgeport Rescue Mission. "This event is a celebration of the community spirit and an opportunity to provide much-needed resources to our friends and neighbors. We look forward to welcoming everyone and creating unforgettable memories together."

The Bridgeport Rescue Mission extends its gratitude to all event sponsors, volunteers, and partners whose generous contributions have made this event possible.
