Darien Soundings

Dear Darien,

Welcome to the 7th annual Be Home for the Holidays campaign! The CT REALTORS® Foundation is pleased to once again partner with the Connecticut Coalition to End Homelessness to help end family homelessness in the state.

Thanks to you, a child could stay safe in their home. Your generous gift will help prevent families from becoming homeless by providing emergency assistance to help them stay in their home and not enter the shelter system. For every $25 donated, the CT REALTORS® Care Foundation will give a plush Paddington bear to a child living in a shelter during the holidays.

The success of the campaign depends on your support and promoting and getting others involved! You can start your own online “bear raiser” (team) and use your personalized donation link to encourage family and friends to donate. You can put up a "giving tree" in your place of business and encourage others in your community to do so as well or get your church/clubs to hold a "bear raising" drive too.

Donate here.

At Home in Darien is a local non profit organization based in Darien. The organization helps people receive in-home care, so they can be in a comfortable environment, rather than a nursing home or assisted-living center. On top of that they offer transportation services and home safety evaluations. For the past 10 years, At Home In Darien has been serving the seniors of Darien by helping them live independently and comfortably at home. 

Visit their website to donate or volunteer today.
