The Miracles in Coastal Fairfield County project ensured that numerous local families had a memorable holiday with lots of surprises under their tree. Generous businesses, individuals and organizations adopted 16 families from their Schools of Hope and provided the children and parent(s) with toys, clothing and household items this holiday season.

The Wells Fargo branch in Trumbull was among seven of their branches that participated in the Miracles in Coastal Fairfield County program. Through their generosity, a family in Bridgeport received a holiday miracle when they needed it most.
