 Help Bridgeport Kids Affected by Government Shutdown

Girl Receiving food.jpg

The federally-funded Head Start program at Action for Bridgeport Community Development (ABCD) is closed due to the government shutdown. That means 1,200 children will not have meals usually provided by the program. We started a Bridgeport Head Start virtual food drive where you can purchase "virtual" grocery bags to help feed the children enrolled in the program.
