Westy Self Storage of Norwalk, Conn., is donating 420 square feet of free storage space to Christian Community Action, Norwalk Inc., for the storage of donated furniture, canned goods and other items it passes out to the needy. State Rep. Lawrence F. Cafero Jr. helped broker the arrangement between the charity organization and the self-storage facility. The agreement is in place for one year, at which time it will be revisited.
Christian Community Action, based in the South Norwalk Community Center provides resources such as food and furniture to local residents in need of emergency assistance. Last year, the nonprofit organization distributed more than 3,000 pieces of furniture to 914 families, according to Cafero's office.
