Neighbors are banding together to feed those receiving and providing medical treatment during the coronavirus pandemic working with Darien’s Four Forks. .
After Nolen Lane neighbors initiated the first effort, Four Forks’ Megan Ruppenstein said “the outpouring from so many other groups in our community has been tremendous. So many have rallied together to support hospital workers and those on the front lines.”
Family and Friends of Nolen Lane: — organized by Michael and Ingrid Sarver — donated to pay for 150 meals. They were delivered to Deborah Fedeli and her team at Stamford Hospital on Tuesday, March 24.
Four Forks has since been contacted by Caroline Rosen of Relihan Road who gathered donations from neighbors and friends across Darien and Rowayton.
“Her group is called Parents of Darien & Rowayton. We are delivering 60 dinners tonight (Thursday) to Stamford Hospital to the 10th floor (where sick individuals are waiting for results) and to the ER department,” Ruppenstein said.
