When I was working in television there were a handful of stories that I took great pride in telling. One of those stories was that of the Marella family.

When it comes to being green – it’s been a slow and steady learning curve in our household. Like everything else in life I really and truly believe that everything must be done in moderation.

Since moving back to the Greenwich area 4 years ago I have loved getting to know some of our local charities. The Family Centers has always stood out to me as a non-profit that works with integrity and love – serving children, adults, and teens.
