With Depot Day fast approaching, The Newtown Fund still has five families who need to be adopted this holiday season.
The Newtown Fund’s Holiday Basket Program provides gifts for all members of a family, food to get through the holidays, and gift certificates for gas, shoes, additional food, etc. The families are kept anonymous, after contacting Social Services.
This year’s Depot Day — the day when all items for the annual holiday program are dropped off, organized, and then delivered to the families — is scheduled for Saturday, December 14.
Anyone who might be able to adopt a family is encouraged to contact Layne Lescault at 203-270-6481 as soon as possible. Items can be purchased by one person, a family, a club or group. Ms Lescault can help prospective “adopters” coordinate their efforts.
