The Great ThanksGiving Project

Every year at Thanksgiving Bridgeport Rescue Mission provides a turkey, a bag of fixings, and winter coats to families in need. Coats of all sizes are needed, and canned food items in need are corn, gravy, peas, and beans.

The Great ThanksGiving Project is widely recognized as Coastal Fairfield County’s most impactful holiday outreach. Distributions take place in Bridgeport and Norwalk. If you can make a donation, please bring it to the Donation Center at 1069 Connecticut Avenue, Bridgeport, Tuesday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

If you have a donation but are unable to transport it, call the Bridgeport Rescue Mission before November 1 at 203-333-4087, ext. 112, to make arrangements for pick-up. For more information or to make a monetary donation go to:
