FAIRFIELD, Conn. – Fairfield’s government and Operation Hope have set up a relief fund to help Fairfield residents who were affected by Hurricane Sandy.
“This critical fund is one way people can make a difference in helping our Fairfield neighbors through this difficult time,” First Selectman Michael Tetreau said in a news release.
The Fairfield Storm Sandy Relief Fund will provide financial help to the town’s residents in need of assistance after Sandy. A committee of town officials and Operation Hope staff members will review and approve applications for residents seeking aid from the fund.
All donations to the fund are tax-deductible. The town will provide donors with contribution acknowledgement letters for tax-filing purposes.
To make a donation, send a check made out to “OH-FFLD Storm Sandy RF” to Operation Hope’s main offices at 636 Old Post Road. You can also drop off cash and gift certificate donations at the office during normal business hours. Operation Hope is also accepting credit card donations via its website.
Fairfield residents who need financial assistance due to Sandy are encouraged to visit or call Operation Hope at 203-292-5588 ext. 232 to obtain applications.
“We are grateful for the opportunity to help our neighbors in need at this time,” Operation Hope Executive Director Carla Miklos said in a press release.
