Here's some of what made news this week on It's Relevant:

In Stamford, Neighbors Link Stamford and the Franklin Street Community Health Center teamed up to provide dental medical services to Stamford's recently immigrated residents at no charge. 

"It is a chance for, like I said, a lot of people who haven't been able to see a dentist in years. This is their opportunity to get that care, so it's very important," said Christian Mendoza, operations manager at Neighbors Link Stamford. 

In total, about 500 people benefited from the event.

In Greenwich, students, teachers, and community members celebrated the 2014 Community Service Awards. 

"When I see signs that say 'Greenwich, Home of Sports' Champions,' I say to myself, when are we going to honor and put up on a pedestal another set of champions who really serve their community? And that was the background for the establishment of these awards. What you put up on a pedestal and respect is what you get," said Dr. Ernest Fleishman, former Superintendent of Schools and founder of the awards.

The ultimate award of the night, the Fleishman Service Award, was given to Greenwich High School Senior John Clarke.

In Norwalk, students, teachers and parents went head-to-head for the Community Spelling Bee to benefit the Norwalk Education Foundation. 

"We did this to bring everyone together, and it's also a fundraiser for us, but more importantly, because we're not raising a ton of money, it's a community builder " said Gloria Tenofsky, Executive Director of Norwalk Education Foundation.
