>What You Can Do

with 2 comments

>A new daily feature was launched in The Register Citizen this morning.
“What You Can Do” will provide a specific volunteer opportunity or donation you can make to aid local charities or causes.
The first to be highlighted is an opportunity at the Friendly Hands Food Bank (50 King St., Torrington, 860-482-8661), which is seeking non-perishable food donations and children’s clothing from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
It can be found on page 3 of today’s print edition.
Imagine the impact we could have if even a handful of the newspaper’s readers took action each day in response to needs such as this!

  2. >I just wanted to introduce myself…my name is Deb & I’m a member of Center Congregational Church in Torrington. We collect food and money for local organizations such as Friendly Hands, and I am a member of the “Fill the Truck Ministry Team” at the church where we strive to feed the hungry with donations from our members every week, year-round. I have started a blog that can be accessed at for people to read/think/respond/participate/etc. on hunger, poverty and other such social issues. Thank you!
