Helen Ainson holds annual Toys for Tots fundraiser in Darien

DARIEN — Helen Ainson opted to hold their annual Toys for Tots fundraiser in a different way, much like many others this year. Forced to get creative because the usual fashion show for the destination clothing store was impeded by the pandemic, long-time owner Erica Jensen opted to do an socially distant, pandemic-minded event that included an outdoor fire pit to continue to collect for Toys for Tots.

Attendees were also able to write checks to Helen Ainson’s neighbor, Darien Toy Box.
