Our Calcagni Wallingford REALTORS have been working hard getting their Christmas “shoebox” gifts ready to donate to the Wallingford Emergency Shelter. Each box consists of various toiletry items, gloves, hats, snacks, etc. Pink boxes will be given to women and blue for men…Just a little something to make this holiday season a little warmer for those down on their luck.

The shelter has been filled to capacity every night this winter. If you’re interested in making a donation, please contact the shelter at


The Realtors of Calcagni Associates Real Estate, New Haven County’s leading independent real estate brokerage, had a good reason to dress up for a recent fun night out on the town. Led by realtor Tara Carey, Calcagni’s Wallingford office held a Dress up Happy Hour Fundraiser on February 23rd at Jake’s Tavern, located on Center Street in Wallingford. The proceeds from the night’s festivities, over $300 plus a $50 gift card to a local department store given by Jake’s, are being donated towards furnishing one of two new townhouse units at the Wallingford Emergency Shelter.

The Wallingford Emergency Shelter, a non-profit organization that provides temporary housing and meals during the winter months to those in need, recently broke ground on a the two-unit home, and construction is expected to be completed within the next few months. In addition to the happy hour event, the Wallingford team at Calcagni Associates is also currently collecting donations of gently used household items to donate to furnish the unit at the shelter.

“Tara and all of the agents on our team have always been involved in causes to benefit those in need in the local community,” said Steve Calcagni, President. “They have done an amazing job of working as a team and to pitch in and make a difference for such a great cause.”

If you have any household items you would like to donate, please stop by Calcagni Associates’ Wallingford office, located at 924 North Main Street Extension, or call Tara Carey at 203-265- 1821. For information about the Wallingford Emergency Shelter, visit
