DARIEN, CONN. -- The Darien Daily voice accepts signed letters to the editor. Send letters to darien@dailyvoice.com.

To The Editor:

During this holiday season, please support The Community Fund of Darien by making a year-end donation.

We are YOUR Community Fund: The Community Fund of Darien is committed to ensuring that your contributions have the greatest possible impact.

Have you deliberately vetted each charity to which you make a donation? We have!

Do you know which issues are most pressing in Darien and the surrounding communities? We do!

We are leaders in collaboration and philanthropy: As funders of more than 25 local nonprofit organizations in Darien, Stamford, and Norwalk, we collaborate with local service providers to understand their needs, give counsel and grant financial assistance. Our donors rely on us to allocate their dollars to where it is most needed.

A single donation to The Community Fund of Darien provides support for many of our vulnerable neighbors.

We support Darien: We run programs for Darien teens, including the Youth Community Fund, Thriving Youth Task Force, Youth Asset Team and the DHS Volunteer Fair.

We are tackling the issue of teenage substance abuse and promoting youth assets throughout town.

We bring together community leaders for a monthly discussion on the town’s most pressing needs (recent topics included mental health, senior services, and updates from town government officials and the school superintendent).

This collaboration benefits the entire Town of Darien.

We also provide emergency financial assistance to Darien residents in need.

At the Community Fund of Darien, we strive to make Darien and our neighboring towns of Stamford and Norwalk better places to live.

We hope you will join us in giving back to our wonderful community.

For more information or to make a donation, please visit www.communityfunddarien.org.

Laurie Orem,

Member of The Community Fund’s board and vice president of development
