Mercedes-Benz of Fairfield presented $7,350 to the Bridgeport Rescue Mission on behalf of all clients who purchased a car from the dealership in September.

The donation represents $50 for each car sold during the showroom's grand opening celebration last month.

In addition, Mercedes-Benz of Fairfield donated a cargo van to the Mission to assist in their delivery efforts.

"The funds are at work right now helping our neighbors who are homeless and in other ways struggling against life's challenges," said Terry Wilcox, executive director for the Bridgeport Rescue Mission.
