These bags are hand delivered to homes in early December. The organization would love help collecting any of the following items:

  • applesauce cups 
  • raisins
  • soft granola/cereal bars
  • pudding cups
  • protein drinks

Last year, more than 160 seniors were served and Holiday Baskets expects that number to be even greater this year. Please place your donations in the boxes near the main office. To learn more about Holiday Baskets, please visit THANK YOU for your help making someone's season bright!"

Foster/Respite Request from DCF

My name is Carrie Aldrich and I am the Resource Coordinator out of the Hartford DCF office. My colleagues Kayla Konya and Kaylin Bourgeois are working with me to recruit foster and respite providers in this district.  We are currently in dire need of foster homes.
We value and understand the importance of school stability for children when they enter custody. If any staff member or community family would be willing to become an emergency foster home, it could provide a student with a familiar person to stay with even for a day or two while we search for safe family members or a longer-term foster home. 
We truly appreciate your time in considering this matter and look forward to connecting soon.
Thank you,
Carrie Aldrich
