Lachat Town Farm provides household necessities for 3rd annual MLK Day of Service
Despite the coastal storm that passed through Monday morning, residents in Weston residents made sure they gave back to their community with an act of service on Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
The Lachat Town Farm in Weston hosted its 3rd annual MLK Day of Service, a collaborative effort with Person to Person, which is a charity in lower Fairfield county.
Volunteers formed an assembly line and filled laundry bags with household necessities like laundry detergent, sponges, dish soap, toothpaste, soap, among others.
Once each laundry bag was filled, the finishing touch was a tag with a quote from Dr. King.
The effort was to ensure that no one went back home without the essentials and continue in King's steps.
The event also featured a children's book walk, where a story unfolded along a series of stations on the farm's grounds.
