A Message from the Executive Director

Dear Friends,

Since the beginning of the New Year, we at TAG have faced numerous challenges; but, before I get into that, I sincerely hope all of you enjoyed a peaceful Holiday. Despite the current situation in our world today; having a connection with family and friends either in person, zooming, or facetiming, has become vital for our well being and one to be cherished. 

We have had quite a lot of snow days this past January, making it difficult to accomplish our food deliveries as well as getting our clients to their appointments. Thankfully, we at TAG and our partner at Neighbor to Neighbor know how to be flexible and make things happen together. We were able to combine two days into one with the food deliveries so that no one missed their weekly delivery. TAG delivers to almost 500 Greenwich families weekly, approximately 1,900 individuals, many who have lost their income source due to the economy or due to COVID. TAG will continue to deliver food as long as there is a need in our community. If you need help, reach out to the Department of Social Services at the Greenwich Town Hall. 

On President's Day weekend, in February, thieves cut 8 catalytic converters out of our vehicles that were parked in the St. Catherine's parking lot. Six of the buses belong to TAG, one belonged to Hill House and one belonged to a TAG employee. Needless to say, when it was discovered, our business came to a screeching halt. Thankfully, we live in a community where other agencies step up to help out! The Greenwich Police Department arrived at Neighbor to Neighbor with 3 vehicles to help deliver the food for the first week. The following week, the Greenwich Boys and Girls Club stepped in and helped out which allowed us to get all our food deliveries to our neighbors. So many individual people and agencies reached out with offers to help either physically, financially or emotionally. It made all of us at TAG very proud to be serving the Greenwich community. TAG now has three of the six vehicles repaired, thanks to the Preferred Automotive. 

Spring is fast approaching which will bring us all a sense of a new beginning. Flowers will start to bloom once again, the vaccinations are being distributed so everyone that wants one can get it and slowly, life seems to be returning to some normalcy. It's been an extremely difficult time, for some more than others, but there is hope and light at the end of this very dark tunnel. Please continue to wear your masks even if you've gotten vaccinated. We must think of others around us, to protect them as well as ourselves so our brighter tomorrow will arrive sooner than later. 

 

Stay well, my friends, 

Debbie Vetromile
