Why I’m Supporting Fred

I’ve been a Greenwich resident for 15 years, and I’ve known Fred for nearly 10 years. I bought my home on Orchard Street in Cos Cob which is just a couple of homes away from where Fred was raised.  Most of my neighbors are the same neighbors that have lived here for 45+ years ago when Fred was a child.  It’s through them that I’ve learned more about Fred and his family’s past which helped me understand why he is the person that he is today.
While I think we all “know” Fred from all of his community service activities in town, few know the personal side and about his childhood. Similar to the rest of us, Fred’s childhood had a tremendous impact on the man and the community leader that he has become.  I think its important for our community to know that he deeply cares about our community and giving back because his family has similar challenges.

Junior League of Greenwich Food Drive, a Success

On Oct. 9, the Junior League of Greenwich’s Done in a Day Committee held a highly successful food drive at the Acme Store locations in Greenwich and Riverside to benefit Neighbor-to-Neighbor. The drive, coordinated by Jennifer Kimura, Committee Co-Chair Brynn John and Sustainer Betsy Parker, stationed a team of leaguers outside of each location with a bright red sandwich board listing the food items most requested by Neighbor- to-Neighbor. The generous and enthusiastic response of the people of Greenwich was heartwarming on the raw and rainy Sunday morning. Sue Moretti Rogers explains “The Junior League of Greenwich’s Done In A Day Committee is a hands-on effort in which our members coordinate and participate in events in conjunction with various community partners. This year, our dedicated volunteers will undertake another 8 similar projects such as this successful food drive which will provide support and targeted impacts for our fellow Greenwich residents in need of assistance.” read more...
