With summer coming to an end, those social calendars are probably slowing down. Looking for a way to stay social throughout the year and make a difference in your community at the same time? If the answer is YES, P2P Social is the event for you!

Entering its 5th year, P2P Social returns on September 11th. Co-sponsored by Volunteer Square and Darien based Person to Person, the event is every Monday during the school year, from 6pm – 8pm. This is a perfect opportunity for adults who want to give back to their communities, but don’t have time during the day. Volunteers will sort and display clothing donations, network and share resources, all while enjoying nibbles and drinks. Bring your friends and join us for some fun on Monday nights! Person-to-Person is located at 1864 Post Road, Darien CT. For more information about P2P Social or other Connecticut volunteer opportunities visit us at VolunteerSquare.com.

“Giving Back” has never been so easy. “Making a Difference” has never been so enjoyable.

Person-to-Person is a community-supported agency that provides emergency assistance for basic needs, and support for individuals and families as they move towards stability. Through their work they are transforming lives and building a stronger community.

Founded in 1968, the idea was to use Person-to-Person’s resources to help those in need and help others learn about the impact of poverty and injustice. From the outset Person-to-Person began by helping and educating. The efforts began with food and clothing and grew to include financial assistance for emergencies, camperships so children would be safe during the summer while their parents worked and college scholarship aid to help break the cycle of poverty.

Volunteers are the lifeblood of P2P and perform essential functions at all levels – from managing programs to scheduling and meeting with clients, picking up donated food and clothing, sorting food and clothing for the Food Pantry and Clothing Center, or serving on the Board of Directors and other volunteer committees. Whether an adult, in high school, middle school or college, retired or working full-time, there is an opportunity for all who would like to volunteer.
