A Message from the Executive Director
During this most difficult time for all of us, I'd like you to know that TAG is doing everything it can to help our neighbors and our community.
Every morning we drive to Greenwich High School and pick up breakfast for our school age children along with personnel from the schools. We deliver to students at Glenville, Hamilton Ave, Western, New Lebanon, Julian Curtis, Central, Eastern, Riverside, Old Greenwich as well as Adams Gardens, Armstrong Court , Wilbur Peck Court and the Town Hall.
As soon as the drivers are finished with that run, they roll over to Neighbor to Neighbor, now housed at Arch Street. Once there we meet up with about 14 volunteers who help us on a daily basis. The volunteers for Neighbor to Neighbor have all the bags of food ready to go which are usually 200-350 bags. We load them onto the TAG vans and the drivers are off to deliver the groceries. On Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, the Boys and Girls Club assist with the deliveries; its a partnership that was meant to be as everyone helps each other to accomplish such an important mission.
Here at TAG, during Covid-19, we have completely changed our mission. The unemployment in Greenwich is growing so the need for food has more than tripled. To have one or both parents unemployed is a terrible hardship on families but with Neighbor to Neighbor providing the food and TAG and the Boys and Girls Club delivering, our goal is to lessen some of the burden.
Fighting an invisible enemy is something I never thought we would see and the effects have been devastating. Here at TAG our hearts, thoughts and prayers go out to each and every family that has been affected by this awful disease and we hope and pray this will all be over soon. Until then, the drivers here at TAG will be out in the community doing what they do best, bring life sustaining food to those in need.
Be well, my friends, and hopefully, when I write again, this will all be a memory,
Thoughts and Prayers,
Executive Director, TAG
