In a continued effort to support our community during this time, we have compiled a list of local non-profit and service organizations that provide resources to those who may be in need, and which would also benefit from any and all support you may be able to offer. For your convenience, we’ve included a bit about the work they do, as well as a link to their websites.

💙Person to Person: Providing emergency food assistance to those in need. In response to the COVID-19 situation, Person to Person is continuing to provide essential services to the most vulnerable in our community. As of April 24th, P2P is responding to the need to increase our capacity to serve Stamford residents and shifting food pantry services to operate out of two partner locations, and add an additional day of operations. These changes will permit us to have longer distribution hours, and allow for safe social distancing. These hours are being supplemented by home delivery to anyone requesting it. Learn more here.
