Shout Out to the Danbury Volunteer Fire Department and Five Below!

The dedication of our Danbury Volunteer Fire Department is already unquestionable, but their mission to help support kids in need in our community is proven again and again as they brave the cold to collect toys for Family & Children's Aid. With the closing of Toys R Us, we were all concerned as to where and how we could continue to provide gifts for the countless families served by FCA. Five Below has proven to be an outstanding partner, collecting toys all week long as well to help fill the trucks as soon as they show up on Friday nights! We can't thank these amazing people more! They are definitely our Holiday Heroes!


Shout Out to the Candlewood East Marina!

This year marks the 11th Annual Boatload of Toys Toy Drive benefiting Family & Children's Aid at Candlewood East Marina. Their goal is to fill a boat with toys!! We think this year they might need a fleet! Their 2019 Nautique GS20 is almost ready to sail, but collections are continuing through December 20, 2018. 

Shout Out to the DiBiase Family!

The DiBiase Family has once again selected Family & Children's Aid to be the recipient of donations of toys in honor of Lauren DiBiase, who loved children. The Love for Lauren Toy Drive will be held at Family & Children's Aid on Saturday, December 15th from 10am to Noon. 


Shout Out to the Princess Ball!

The Princess Ball is a set of lovely evening for fathers and daughters. Held at the Ethan Allen Hotel for girls from Grades 1-8, a portion of all proceeds goes to help worthy charities in our community. The Princess Ball has been a wonderful supporter of Family & Children's Aid for years upon years, and we can't thank them enough for their continued support!
