Newman's Own Foundation has continued its support of the Darien-based Person-to-Person programs and services with a $5,000 grant for general operations plus a $5,000 grant for the emergency assistance program.
Diane Reese Tucker, director of development at Person-to-Person, underscores the importance of the grants.
"The majority of our clients come to us for assistance with payments for security deposits or utility bills, or for groceries to prepare three meals a day for a full week," she said.
According to Tucker, more than 90 percent of all donations directly benefit P2P clients.
"Donations to general operations help fund the dedicated staff of case workers who, at our Darien and Norwalk offices, combine extensive professional experience and collaborative energy to meet the immediate and long-term needs of our clients," she said.
