Firstly, the need we have identified in our local community is the help for children with cancer, to make them be entertained and try to distract them from their routine at the hospital.

Be A Part Of The Solution Not The Pollution

We, as Fond of the Pond, have found that fighting for a common goal stands as to support our community in the Greater Danbury area.

This can and will be a stable goal throughout because of the strong partnership we’ve developed with Ben’s Bells.
