For some people, including those in the Norwalk community, hunger isn’t satisfied so quickly and it becomes a day-to-day struggle. The Rowayton Library is dedicated to helping the community, and is once again partnering with AlphaGraphics, the print, graphics and marketing communications provider located in Norwalk, in “AlphaGraphics Fights Hunger campaign.” The Campaign is collecting non-perishable foods for the Christian Community Action, Norwalk (CCA).
To help in the goal, The Rowayton Library is trying to collect 500 pounds of jars of Peanut Butter and Jelly beginning June 1st through July 31st.
The Rowayton Library has chosen to collect jars of peanut butter and jelly because it is the one food combination enjoyed by young, and not so young, and keeps well. The Library is started the collection in June because so many families who rely on “school lunch” will have to look elsewhere during the summer months. And food pantries, homeless shelters and other charities needing food typically, receive donations during the winter holidays (November and December). By June and July, their pantries are low. The timing of this campaign is the right help at the right time for community organizations in need.
Please consider making a donation of a jar or two of PB&J at the Rowayton Library. For more information about AlphaGraphics in Norwalk or about its participation in the “AlphaGraphics Hunger Campaign,” please contact Miles Tullo at 203-847-8884.
