By Building One Community, via The Patch

Partnered with Greenwich Academy (GA), Brunswick School, and Trinity Church, Building One Community – The Center for Immigrant Opportunity (B1C), brought the magic of the holidays to over four hundred children of local immigrants. 

B1C’s Shippan Center, transformed into a Winter Wonderland, hosted over one thousand of their participants and families who connected with volunteers and staff at stations with crafts, snacks, toy selections, a photo with Santa, and books gifted by Stamford Public Education Foundation (SPEF). 

The Community Fund of Darien decked the halls of B1C with Brunswick School and GA the night before the festivities, adorning Christmas trees, lighting menorahs, wrapping presents, and braving the annual battle of untangling twinkly lights.
