STAMFORD, Conn. -- Westy Self Storage in Stamford is helping to support Kids in Crisis by donating a gift for the group’s fundraising raffle at this year’s Annual Best of the Gold Coast Connecticut Event. 

Westy’s raffle contribution includes a storage unit with two months free rent and free use of the Westy truck equipped with driver. Monies raised through the raffle will assist in supporting the services Kids in Crisis provides. 

“As a proud winner of the Best of the Gold Coast, the event has become even more meaningful to us as we are able to provide support to Kids in Crisis,” said Joe Schweyer, district director of Westy Self Storage in Stamford. “It is our privilege to contribute to Kids in Crisis as they provide vital services and make such a positive impact on so many lives.”

Kids in Crisis, located in Cos Cob, is Connecticut’s only free, round-the-clock agency providing emergency shelter, crisis counseling and community educational programs for children of all ages and families dealing with a wide range of crises.

Since its founding in 1978, Kids in Crisis has helped more than 132,000 Connecticut children and families. Last year, more than 6,184 children and families received assistance from the organization. Click here for more information about the programs and services offered by Kids in Crisis. 

“We are thankful to Westy Self Storage for their generous donation toward our raffle,” said Shari Shapiro, executive director of Kids in Crisis. “With partners like Westy we can continue helping to support the lives of countless children and families in our community that reach out to Kids in Crisis." 

The Best of the Gold Coast Connecticut Event is a celebration of the area's finest businesses. All proceeds from this event will benefit Kids in Crisis.
