    Darien family members volunteer at same nonprofit

    By Sandra Diamond Fox

    Volunteerism certainly runs in the blood of the Russell family of Darien since four members have volunteered for the same nonprofit organization — Building One Community (B1C).

    Since 2017, Holly Russell has taught English Language and Learning classes at B1C.

    Her oldest son Liam, 20, tutored English Language Learning all summer and tutored children in the summer math program.

    Holly’s younger son, Aram, 18, who is a freshman at Yale University, has helped with the summer reading program for children and their parents. The parents in the program don’t speak English at home.
