Every year, our team at Jacobs & Wallace is humbled and honored to give back to our community. We all share the same desire to help others in need. The firm’s culture of giving stems from our humbled partners, Adele Jacobs and Andrew Wallace, whose dedication to raising funds and volunteering for local organizations inspires us all to go above and beyond every day.
Our team was thrilled to volunteer with the Bridgeport Rescue Mission, a wonderful organization with tireless volunteers who fight back against poverty in our community. We love partnering with these hardworking individuals during Thanksgiving to support families across Connecticut. Here’s how we were able to help!
Great ThanksGiving Project with Bridgeport Rescue Mission
This year, the Jacobs & Wallace team handed out turkeys and Thanksgiving food to local families in need at the Bridgeport Rescue Mission’s annual Great ThanksGiving Project. We were able to donate funds to purchase 100 turkeys for deserving families this year who couldn’t otherwise afford to put a hot meal on the table.
The Great ThanksGiving Project is the biggest event of the year for the Bridgeport Rescue Mission. They serve more than 7,000 families in six cities across Connecticut: Bridgeport, Stamford, Norwalk, New Haven, Ansonia, and Waterbury. They provide up to 655,626 meals every year!
Ways to Help Bridgeport Rescue Mission
While the Great ThanksGiving Project is undoubtedly the highlight of the year, there are tons of ways you can help give back through the Bridgeport Rescue Mission all year round. Here are just a few:
- Donate: Did you know it only takes $2.50 to provide a meal to someone in need? You can always donate to the Mission to help end hunger for people in your neighborhoods. Choose your gift and find out how many meals you can provide!
- Volunteer: The Mission is always looking for people to volunteer for events. You can volunteer at the Donation Center, Community Pantry, or special events throughout the year. Find opportunities here.
