The team at Connecticut Valley Homes is passionate about building.We build homes designed to fit our customer’s lifestyle and budget. We choose to build modular because we believe it is a smarter way to build: our homes are built efficiently and securely in a weather-controlled environment. We take pride in our craft and often hear from our homeowners how proud they are of their new home.
Recently, we had the opportunity to experience pride on an entirely different level.
With many other local businesses in Fairfield, CT, we sponsored the first ever “Skating on Sherman Green.” Hosted by Al DiGuido of Al’s Angels, a charity providing meals and toys for families in need at the holidays and LIV FREE, a nonprofit that supports children with cancer and rare blood diseases, it was a true Winter Carnival.
Despite the spring-like weather, a synthetic ice skating rink welcomed community members along with the Fairfield Prep hockey team and costumed characters. Ice skating, music, and food were enjoyed by all, especially the wheel-chair bound skaters.
Money raised by Al’s Angels and LIVFREE goes to local families who are battling pediatric cancer.
LIVFREE was created by Daniel and Katrina Vieira after their toddler, Lauren, was diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia in 2015. Thankfully, two years later, Lauren is now in remission from her cancer! After facing all the hospital stays, chemotherapy, medications, blood transfusions, and obstacles to living a normal life that comes with having a child with cancer, the Vieira family began LIVFREE to support other parents that are now living through what they have endured.
Al DiGuido created Al’s Angels because his heart was broken the first time he personally had contact with a child with cancer. He asked himself: what if it were my child? Now he works to raise money for families who have exhausted their financial resources helping their child survive cancer or other hardships.
