DARIEN — It’s not everyday that Ann Gilmartin comes home from work with dirt under her nails. The Darien resident and founder of the Darien-based Wings Unlimited, a meeting planning company, usually spends her days at work helping companies plan corporate events. However, it’s also normal for her and her team to participate in volunteer work, so to celebrate their company’s 30th anniversary this year, they did just that by getting down and dirty at Fairgate Farm.
Gilmartin said giving back to the community is a priority at her company. In the past, they’ve volunteered in creative ways, like donating spare toiletries they pick up in hotels to Inspirica, an organization in Stamford that serves people who are homeless. But Gilmartin put a twist on her charitable spirit this year when she and her staff spent part of their 30-year anniversary celebration volunteering at Fairgate Farm, a communal farm in Stamford.
