Just Some of our Thanksgiving Food Collection!

Adaline DeMarrais from The Evergreen Network and just a few of the turkeys we have collected for our annual Thanksgiving food collection. We are feeding 97 families this year with turkeys and additional food. Children from these families are home from school for 4 days and have no school breakfast or lunch to rely on. This additional food is tremendously important. We are delivering Thanksgiving meals Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday.

Your donations make this possible. Thank you!

Bridgeport Bluefish and Evergreen Network Celebrate "Christmas In July"!

The Bridgeport Bluefish and Evergreen Network celebrated “Christmas in July” at Harbor Yard last month. The Bluefish asked fans to come to the ballpark with a toy or a game for a Bridgeport youngster in need. The Bluefish collected some 400 gifts which were given to the Evergreen Network for distribution. Santa’s “helpers” pictured above are (left to right) Kelly Bell and Kate Billings, Bluefish staffers; Adaline DeMarrais, founder and executive director of the Evergreen Network, and Tim Carr and Larry Stewart, also of the Bluefish organization.

Thank you Bridgeport Bluefish and Bluefish fans!!
