Fairfield Social Services Kicks Off 2021 Family Holiday Giving Program

Fairfield, CT - Fairfield Social Services has kicked off its 2021 Family Holiday Giving Program to help Fairfield families in need during the  holiday season. Last year more than 150 families received gift cards, generously donated by their neighbors, including individuals, businesses, faith-based and community  organizations. 

COVID has brought many challenges from job loss to childcare expense and many worries in between. Rather than   collecting wrapped gifts and toys, we are again requesting gift cards for supermarkets, gas stations, your favorite local stores and businesses, Amazon, Target, Walmart - anywhere families shop for their loved ones for the holidays. During this special, yet stressful time of year, our goal is to support with gift cards to help purchase items for their loved ones. That ability to select and purchase gifts provides our clients another level of independence in an otherwise difficult time.

If you are interested in donating or receiving holiday help, please contact Eileen Fickes, Social Worker for the Department of Human and Social Services, at 203-256-3170 or by email at  This email address is being protected from spambots.

Donations are gratefully accepted during business hours 9 AM to 3:30 PM at the Bigelow Center for Senior Activities 100 Mona Terrace, Fairfield CT 06824.
