Stern Village seeking scouts and community service organizations

Stern Village, The Trumbull Housing Authority, is seeking Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and community service organizations to help with the Spring beautification of Stern Village and Stern Center/Congregate.

Stern Village would like to create raised gardens for their elderly, frail and handicapped residents, as well as a Zen garden that would be therapeutic and soothing to their residents. Stern Village could also use a Bocce Ball court for their residents to enjoy.

This is a wonderful opportunity to help their vibrant community consisting of 62+ year old seniors and disabled residents. “Our residents take the utmost pride in their surroundings and many of them would love to have vegetable and flower gardens, but are unable to bend down to take care of them. Any help would be greatly appreciated”, said Harriet Polansky, Executive Director of Stern Village.

All donations of mulch, fertilizer, gravel, plants and other garden supplies would be greatly appreciated. Contact Polansky at or by calling 203-261-5740.
