Giving Fund: The comprehensive list of cases

The Giving Fund, a joint venture between Family Centers, Person-to-Person, Greenwich Time and the Stamford Advocate, is continuing its goal of helping individuals in the community for a 36th year.

"What makes the Giving Fund unique is that it helps meet basic necessities that many of us take for granted for a number of people," said Bill Brucker, vice president of Greenwich-based nonprofit Family Centers. "This could be medication to stay in their health or could go toward a much-needed car repair to someone who is constrained by income."

Last year, the Giving Fund received more than $52,000 in donations, Brucker said.

Below are short stories about local people who are down on their luck. Their names have been changed for privacy reasons, but their stories are real.
