Fairfield County Bank donated $5,000 to Meals on Wheels of Ridgefield last week.

The donation will be used to help fund the supplies needed by the organization to fulfill its

mission of providing nourishing meals to low- to moderate-income residents.

“Meals on Wheels has played a vital role in our community for the past 46 years. The amazing

work they do for our neighbors is another demonstration of what makes our community so

special,” said David Schneider, the bank’s CEO.

Meals on Wheels of Ridgefield has been providing meals for those needing assistance due to age, disability or illness since 1972. Each year, more than 140 volunteers prepare and deliver about 20,000 meals to the residents of Ridgefield. With no federal or state funding, Meals on Wheels relies on the generous donations of community members. To learn more about Meals on Wheels, visit its website, mealsonwheelsofridgefield.org.
