A Huge Thank You to Daily Bread's
Wonderful Thanksgiving Volunteers and Donors!
November 19, 2018
We distributed almost 20,000 pounds of food - including a variety of fresh produce, stuffing, cranberry sauce, cookies, pies and, of course, turkeys - to almost 500 families in need.
Our volunteers handled their jobs cheerfully and energetically - picking up donations at a variety of businesses early in the morning, bagging produce, carrying heavy boxes, helping clients with their bags. We couldn't have done it without you!
And we cannot forget our generous donors without whom this impactful annual event would not have been possible. We gave away more food than ever before. Words cannot properly express our gratitude!

The Jewish Federation Endowment of Western Connecticut awarded $5,000 to the Daily Bread to fund the year-long purchase of dairy and produce for its needy clients. The Federation's award gives our agency the ability to fill our new double-door refrigeration unit and move closer to our goal of providing fresh, healthy food to the hungry families of Greater Danbury. Some of the items that will be available more readily in 2018 include, eggs, margarine, cheese and somewhat fragile produce such as leafy green vegetables. Our clients are so grateful for these new offerings. We extend a big thank you to the Jewish Federation!
