Generous residents filled the community room below the United Methodist Church Friday, November 22, with donated canned goods and items intended to get to as many as 81 families in need during the holidays. Through the Women Interested in Newtown (WIN) basket program, members and high school students volunteered to prepared goods for delivery that afternoon.
Co-coordinators Mandy Monaco and Cyndy DaSilva, in an appeal to residents recently for more support as donations had been low this year, glanced around the bustling room, pleased that calls to help had come.
