Feeding the hungry and sheltering the homeless in the Danbury CT area since 1982

The annual “Hearts United Against Hunger” food drive at Shelter Rock School resulted in a donation of 1217 non perishable items to stock Dorothy Day’s shelves. First graders won the competition with a mighty total of 311 items. Each paper heart represents a donation and each color represents a different grade level. Special thanks go to Principal Anna Machial, her Administrative Assistant Jeri DiFronzo and the custodial staff for a job well done.
