DARIEN, Conn. -- Darien's Person-to-Person received more than $5,000 worth of merchandise from a local bakery and cafe.
Beth DuPont, owner of Darien’s Good Things, Good Food, donated the $5,000 in merchandise to P2P. The donated household items will be distributed to P2P clients through the agency’s Clothing Center.
Person-to-Person’s resources "help those in need and help others learn about the impact of poverty and injustice," representatives said on the group's website.
"From the outset Person-to-Person began by helping and educating," representatives said on the website. "The efforts to help began with food and clothing and grew to include financial assistance for emergencies, camperships so children would be safe during the summer while their parents worked and college scholarship aid to help break the cycle of poverty."
