Tony Giunta Needs A Kidney

For 35 years, Tony Giunta served Westport.  Now it’s time to repay the favor.

The Staples grad spent his entire career working for us, as a police officer and detective.  With his dogged determination, quiet grace and gentle good humor, he epitomized Westport’s finest.

Beyond his shifts, he was active as a Boy Scout leader and Staples Key Club advisor.  In 1996 he carried the Olympic torch down the Post Road, en route to Atlanta.

For more than 2 years, Tony has been on dialysis.  His kidneys are failing, and he needs a transplant.

If you — or someone you know — can donate a life-saving kidney, the time is now.  Contact Joyce Albert, Yale-New Haven Hospital transplant coordinator, at 203-688-8373.

    I pray Tony gets the kidney he needs.

    When I first moved to Westport more than a decade ago, he did something very kind for me, a total stranger. It was completely beyond the call of duty. And it was part of my introduction to life in a small town, where gestures large and small weave a meaningful community life.
