Trumbull Community Women’s membership covers a wide spectrum of ages, lifestyles, occupations, and different stages of life.  But we come together with a mutual goal: to reach beyond ourselves and find the time to give back to this town we all love.  The friendships that have developed among our members because of this spirit is one of the best things about belonging to the club. For more information, contact us at trumbullcommunitywomen@gmail.com.

Tidy-Up Trumbull

The date for Tidy-Up Trumbull is Saturday, April 21, from 9:00 a.m. until noon with a thank you celebration for all the volunteers starting at noon at the pavilion in Twin Brooks Park.  We are looking for businesses, organizations, civic groups, sports teams and residents to participate. It is also a great opportunity for High School kids who need Community Service hours.  Please contact Liz Thomas at lizthomas413@sbcglobal.net if you want to participate.

Projects From the Heart

Projects From the Heart is a program to collect items for care packages for our Troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.  Trumbull Community is currently collecting leftover Halloween candy.  One of our members will have a box outside her garage at 137 Whitney Avenue to collect the candy.  Please feel free to drop by and donate anything you can. Our troops will certainly appreciate it.

On October 30th, Trumbull Community Women donated a television and other entertainment equipment to the Bridgeport office of the Department of Children and Families.  The office handles over 300 children every year, and the equipment will be enjoyed in the room in which these children wait for their foster families to be assigned.  Shown are Rob Rickard of the Department of Children and Families, and Sandra Weiner of Trumbull Community Women.

Trumbull Community Women Giving Tree

The TCW GIVING TREE, is located in the lobby of The Trumbull Library, 33 Quality St.  

Between October 1 and November 15, we will be collecting new or gently used gloves, scarves and hats.  As with the previous drive to collect new socks, the beneficiary of the Giving Tree will be the Bridgeport Rescue Mission.

The volunteer organization is hoping that with winter weather on the way, the generosity of the Trumbull community will result in much-needed warmth and comfort for those in need.

Food Pantry

Trumbull Community Women’s support of the Trumbull Food Pantry has been an ongoing effort for decades.   In the past few years, our effort of sharing information on needs, location and mission has increased through food drives which raise funds for gift cards. and stocks the pantry.   We have also shared hundreds of flyers and shopping lists with our community.

Currently serving over 100 families in town, the recipients are your neighbors and friends.  Please continue to support and help spread the word about the items needed.
