Al’s Angels Banners
By now, you’ve probably seen the big banners supporting the Westport Little League all-stars, as they head into this afternoon’s World Series semifinal game. One hangs at Luciano Park. Another is nearby, at the northbound Exit 17 I-95 ramp. And 1000 “Let’s Go Westport Little League” posters can be seen in store windows, from Saugatuck to Green’s Farms.
But did you stop and think how they got there?
Al’s Angels — the Westport-based charity best known for helping children and their families facing cancer, rare blood diseases, natural disasters and severe financial hardship — made it happen. A.J. Penna Construction helped too. An army of volunteers — who during the rest of the year raise funds and pack bins filled with food and toys — is behind the Little League boosterism. Al’s Angels is well known for bringing smiles to faces of kids and parents, in the worst of times.
Now they’re doing the same for our entire town — happily, in the best of times.
