The New Fairfield First Selectman has declared a Civil Preparedness Emergency to ensure that New Fairfield will be eligible for any reimbursement that becomes available from the federal and state governments. The Director of Social Services is available by phone or email to provide assistance to residents in need of food, fuel assistance and rental assistance. The New Fairfield food pantry is fully stocked, but officials say financial donations are always welcomed. As stock becomes depleted, residents will be alerted of the need for non-perishable food donations and how to donate. The town has also added information to their Facebook page about Meal Delivery Services, Mental Health Resources and Addiction Recovery Support.
