One of the most thriving online communities — besides “06880,” of course –is What Up Westport.
That Facebook group is a meeting ground for questions, tip-trading and all-around help.
But What Up? reaches beyond our borders too.
Tomorrow — for the 3rd year in a row — the virtual community members sponsor a townwide collection of actual goods, for real people in true need.
Actually, it’s 3 different drives in one.
Puzzles, board games, arts and crafts, Legos, socks, picture frames, wallets — those are the gifts that will go to underprivileged, and often under-served, families in Bridgeport.
At the same time, there is a collection of non-perishable items for a food bank in desperate need, also in Bridgeport.
Diapers, baby shampoo, baby lotion and bottles will also be collected, for women in safe houses.
It’s a 3-fer — and a win-win-win.
The collection takes place Sunday (November 16) between 12 noon and 1:30 p.m. at the Westport Library upper parking lot, next to the Levitt Pavilion.
See you there!
