Trumbull Community Women Giving Tree
Trumbull Community Women has announced the initiation of a new project in their ongoing drive to help those less fortunate in our community: they will be collecting new socks, to be distributed to local social services organizations.
The TCW GIVING TREE, as this project is called, will be located in the lobby of The Trumbull Library, 33 Quality St. and the beneficiary of their initial drive will be the Bridgeport Rescue Mission.
Socks are essential to people of all ages to keep warm, keep healthy, and to protect feet from the environment. (In fact, many illnesses are easily prevented with a pair of clean, new socks!) But while our community is incredibly generous in helping our neighbors by donating clothing and food, socks are often overlooked as a donation.
HELP US MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN SOMEONE’S LIFE…
DONATE A PAIR OF NEW SOCKS!

2016 Trumbull Community Women
High School Scholarship winner announced
We’re very happy, on behalf of Trumbull Community Women, to announce the 2016 Scholarship winner. Our club’s annual scholarship recognizes a graduating senior who has not only been a dedicated volunteer, but one who has also demonstrated extraordinary leadership in those volunteer efforts.
This year, we are proud to award our scholarship to a student whose series of energy saving and awareness initiatives have helped Trumbull to become a bit “greener”. Several years ago, while driving thru his neighborhood during the holiday season, he noticed that many houses kept their holiday lights on during the day. This inspired him to launch a campaign that would increase awareness about wasted electricity during the holiday season. He submitted a business proposal and working in conjunction with United Illuminating over a 4-year period, he received a series of grants that enabled him to organize volunteers to distribute free automatic timers, to set up booths around town to educate residents, to hold seminars for 4th graders and even to do some door-to-door marketing to make residents aware of the campaign to save energy. As part of it, he organized a town-wide effort “Measure, Monitor and Save Energy” to promote the use of smart technology to help residents save energy; he organized “Energy Savings and Awareness Week” which included “Monitor Monday”, “Turn-Off Thursday” and “Fix It Friday”; and of course, the holiday light program he copywrited in 2014 called “Light It but Time It”.
We are very pleased to award the 2016 Trumbull Community Women’s Community Service Scholarship to Anuj Sisodiya who will be majoring in Business at George Washington University in the fall. Congratulations!
