Employees from Diageo’s North American headquarters in Norwalk gave back this holiday season by participating in a variety of volunteer programs throughout Fairfield County. The flagship event for the company in Connecticut is its annual “Diageo 100” program, during which more than 100 local employees host a holiday party for local children at the Stepping Stones Museum for Children in Norwalk. Each year the company hosts hundreds of children from different community organizations. This year’s event benefited five local charities including the Norwalk Housing Authority, the South Norwalk Community Center, Family & Children’s Agency, Achieve and After the Bell. Diageo also participated in a “Toys for Tots” drive and employees volunteered at a “pop-up toy store” at local agency Person-to-Person as well. Volunteers assisted in setting up the store, which is a place where families “shopped” for a free gift and book for their child.
