How to Help

Consider making a monetary donation to the Community Dining Room - Support CDR nutritional programs!

Donate Money and increase your giving power - the CDR shops at the Connecticut Food Bank which is our major source for perishable foods.

Donate Securities - giving appreciated securities might have additional tax benefits for you that should be discussed with your accountant or attorney. Contact the CDR for more specific information about how to make the donation.

Your tax-deductible donation will support the many programs and services offered by the CDR to Shoreline residents including daily lunch, home delivery option, nutritional support for seniors, children and family dinner with literacy developing story time and free book distribution.. Please see the What We Do section for more information or contact Judy Barron, (203) 488-9750, to learn how your donation will be put to work.
