NORWALK, Conn. -- Volunteers from Norwalk-based FactSet helped pack bags and distribute turkeys Monday in Norwalk as part of the work of Darien nonprofit Person-To-Person.

Norwalk Mayor Rilling joined state Sen. Bob Duff (D-25th District) and state Rep. Fred Wilms (D-142) to pack bags and distribute turkeys. More than 220 turkeys were handed out on Monday, and 340 more on Tuesday.

Turkeys and fixings were obtained from Connecticut Food Bank and Food Bank of Lower Fairfield County. Donations were also received from various grocery stores, businesses, schools and organizations in the area.

“We serve an average of 750 people each month at the Norwalk Food Pantry, so we know firsthand how many people in this area are struggling with food insecurity on a daily basis. For Thanksgiving, it is particularly fulfilling to provide people with the makings of a bountiful holiday meal. We appreciate the generosity of the donors and the efforts of volunteers, including elected officials, to help make this happen,” said P2P Norwalk Site Manager Callie Jayne.

According to Jayne, more than 600 turkeys and fixings – from cranberry sauce, stuffing and mashed potatoes to green beans, yams and dessert – will be distributed to individuals and families in Norwalk, Weston, Westport and Wilton.
