Children’s Learning Centers Virtual Dance Party

Children’s Learning Centers of Fairfield County (CLC) announces the live stream of “I Will Survive,” a virtual dance party with Greenwich’s DJ April Larken on Instagram Friday, April 3, from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. To attend, follow @aprillarken on Instagram and tune in to her “Live” feed by clicking on her profile picture. In light of the rapidly developing Covid-19 situation, CLC canceled its Annual Benefit on April 24, which was to feature the Grammy-award winning Gloria Gaynor. Instead, CLC is bringing the dance party to living rooms everywhere. The event is free, but donations are welcome. Currently, CLC is focusing its effort to help assist those on the front lines battling the COVID-19 pandemic by providing care and education of healthcare workers and first responders. read more...

Mothers for Others Delivers 18,000 Diapers

Greenwich’s Mother for Others (MFO), the largest independent diaper bank in lower Fairfield County, has emptied its shelves of diapers and transferred them to Family Centers and Neighbor to Neighbor for distribution during the COVID-19 pandemic. Normally, clients come in person once a month to the MFO distribution room to receive a week’s supply of diapers, wipes, and gently used baby equipment. In light of the State mandate to minimize social interaction, MFO needed to temporarily adapt its distribution process. On Tuesday, March 17, MFO leadership reached out to the Greenwich Department of Human Services, Family Centers and the Greenwich United Way to discuss options. By 10:00 a.m. Wednesday morning, MFO volunteers had completed the transfer of over 18,000 diapers to Family Centers and Neighbor to Neighbor. The diapers sent out will provide one week’s worth of diapers for over 400 children. read more...
