From old-timers like Gault and Mitchells to younger arrivals like JoyRide and Saugatuck Sweets, Westport is filled with local businesses that give back in countless ways to the town.
But multinational corporations do it too.
Today, 40,000 Nielsen employees in 109 countries gave back to the communities in which they live and work. It’s called “Global Impact Day.”
Westporter Bruce Haymes joined a group of Connecticut colleagues who painted the Linxweiler House.
The Post Road emergency shelter for single mothers and their children looks better than ever.
As the sign says, the Linxweiler family bequeathed the house — once owned by
a tinsmith blacksmiths — as a gift to the town of Westport.
Thanks to a giant, multinational TV ratings corporation — and its local employees — it’s a gift that keeps on giving.
