We’ve heard a lot about the importance of helping local restaurants during the pandemic. And of course we know that now, in these very tough times, many area residents are hungry.
Here is a brilliant way to help both.
Westport-based CK Business Solutions and Stamford’s CC VIP have teamed up with Filling in the Blanks. The non-profit delivers weekend meals to low-income children in Fairfield and Westchester Counties.
The astonishingly simple idea:
Buy a gift card from a restaurant anywhere in Westport — or Norwalk, New Canaan, Stamford or Greenwich.
Leave it at the restaurant and email firstname.lastname@example.org, letting them know you bought it. A Filling in the Blanks volunteer will pick it up.
If you prefer, you can mail the gift card to CK Business Solutions, PO Box 2031, Westport, CT 06880.
Filling in the Blanks will put the card in the hands of a family in need.
You help your favorite restaurant. They feed a hungry family.
We got this! Let’s go to town — figuratively and literally. It could be the greatest gift you give this holiday season.
