With fuel and food prices on the rise more Connecticut families may find themselves in need. In an effort to offset food cost http://www.ctfaire.com/ is hosting a charitable can drive on their opening weekend.

September 27: Donate a minimum of two canned goods on opening day of the Faire’s annual performance and get a special "Buy One General admission Get One Free" discount.

September 28: Donate a minimum of one canned good on opening Sunday and your child (ages 5-12) will be admitted FREE when accompanied by an adult.

The Faire’s goal is to collect 8,000 cans which will be donated to the Manchester Area Conference of Churches, a non-profit organization hosting 21 food kitchens in Connecticut. Your help is needed to make this can drive a success.

One person can make a difference so please spread the word any way you can. Email your friends or customers about it; post it on your blog; tell your local newspaper about the drive; come up with other ways to get the word out. Donations are being accepted outside the gates so you don’t have to attend the show to give. We’re thinking globally, but working locally.
