Share the Spirit Stamford!

It’s Christmas Eve Stamford and I don’t know about you, but I’m in full Santa crunch mode!

On this special night, I wanted to post some ways you can give back in our community. To support the people, animals and organizations that rely on donations to keep them going.

What a special way to Keep it Local!

This of course is by no means a complete list or organizations , but maybe it will be enough to get you in the spirit!

So let’s get to it…

While we humans, for the most part, can find help for ourselves and others, animals have to rely on their human friends when they are sick, lost or looking to find a forever home. Stamford has wonderful places all around the city that do just this. However, they can’t do it alone. Here are three such places that could use donations of money, food, blankets, newspapers, etc to help care for those who cannot care for themselves. (And PLEASE if you are thinking of adopting, don’t just adopt for a gift only to have to give the pet back a few weeks later. If you are planning to adopt–COMMIT.)

Looking more to donate goods? While these places will also take monetary donations, clothes, furniture, books, etc. are their main goal:  Laurel House:

There you go. Again, this is a far cry from a complete list. But hopefully it will get you thinking of ways you can help out your community, your city and how you too can KEEP IT LOCAL STAMFORD!!
