Toni Maiolo from Ridgefield Thrift Shop presented Founders Hall with a check for $15,000 to support their 2019 hobby and sports program on Thursday, March 14. The activities and classes that fall under this category include bridge, gardening, weaving, wood carving, cooking, pickleball, piano lessons and much more. Founders Hall serves more than 3,650 members annually, many of whom participate in the Hobby and Sports Program.

“Ridgefield Thrift Shop is a bright light in our beloved community and we’re so grateful for their longtime support. Because of their generosity, Founders Hall will continue to offer programs to members that challenge them physically and mentally and give them the opportunity to socialize with their peers,” said Grace Weber, executive director at Founders Hall.

Founders Hall, a donor-supported education and recreation center for people age 60 and older, is located at 193 Danbury Road. For more information, call 203-431-7000, email or visit
