"Organized by 3 women who grew up in Fairfield - Lindsey Reilly Morton, Katie Boland and Kelly Niznansky - the event attracted an army of support from residents, Boy Scouts, civic groups, Fairfield University students and alumni, and others who simply heard about the effort on Facebook or through the media. From 10 a.m. to dusk today, 1,036 registered volunteers joined homeowners and renters along a three-mile stretch along the Fairfield shoreline and also along South Pine Creek to try and undo some of the damage caused by Superstorm Sandy less than 2 weeks earlier. Commitment to Community - Making a difference."
