Bridgeport Rescue Mission is in the midst of their annual Great ThanksGiving Project to provide winter coats, turkeys and bags of Thanksgiving fixings to low-income and working-poor families in coastal Fairfield County.
According to Mission Executive Director Terry Wilcox, scores of individuals, companies, civic groups, churches and synagogues have organized winter clothing, turkey and food drives to make this tremendous outreach possible. Hundreds of volunteers will donate their time during the holiday week to help hand out turkeys, food bags and coats at the Great ThanksGiving Project distribution. Wilcox extends the Mission’s sincere appreciation to all participants and volunteers, including the following Corporate Partners that are providing support: BizMark, R.D. Scinto, Inc., Affinion Group, Audi Fairfield, Mercedes-Benz of Fairfield, Porsche Fairfield, Barrow Street Advisors, Prime Line, PepsiCo, Reed Exhibitions and Enterprise Car Rental.
“Our Great ThanksGiving Project is an opportunity for our community to come together and demonstrate what Thanksgiving is all about—showing our gratitude for our many blessings by serving others in need,” Wilcox said. “Thanks to the support of generous volunteers, donors and corporate sponsors who have come together to bless others with their compassion and generosity, we can ensure no one will go without a Thanksgiving dinner and the ability to ward off the winter chill.”
