Greater Danbury Families Need Your Help.
The City of Danbury and Union Savings Bank are proud to announce the Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund For Greater Danbury. The fund will be used to help bring much needed relief to the families of the Greater Danbury area who have lost their homes or have suffered some type of loss during last week's Hurricane Sandy.
To start, the City of Danbury will donate $5000.00 and Union Savings Bank has agreed to donate $2500.
So how can you help? Starting Tuesday, you can walk into any Union Savings Bank branch in the Greater Danbury area and make a monetary donation. The donation will be recorded and you will be given a receipt. Any amount will be appreciated and the money (which is tax deductible) will be used to assist Greater Danbury residents who have been impacted by Hurricane Sandy.
Newtown, New Milford, Redding, and Bethel are also participating. I want to thank each of the First Selectmen and Mayor Murphy in agreeing to help spread the word.
Some communities - most notably Bethel and Newtown have agreed to make a donation - thank you.
The United Way has agreed to help deploy the money collected for the fund and they will be setting up an online donation system.
If you want to help your neighbor.. now is the time.
Just walk into any Union Savings Bank Branch and help a family from our community.
If you are a family in need, next week we will be announcing the application process for the grant money so hang in there, we got your back..
