>Warm the Children exceeds goal

leave a comment »

>Thank you so much to all who contributed to our Warm the Children campaign this year.
We have now exceeded our 20th anniversary goal of $20,000, and at $20,212, it’s enough to serve 202 children, the most in recent memory. It’s 33 percent more than we raised last year.
It means a lot this year because the need is so great, and even in the good economic years, Warm the Children always has a waiting list of struggling local families who need new, warm, winter clothing for their children.
From the people able to give $5, to Valerie Manor, which came through with a $250 gift at the end in lieu of holding an employee Christmas party this year, and two anonymous givers who contributed $500 and $100 to put us over the top, you have made a direct, real impact to better the lives of some of Northwest Connecticut’s most innocent and vulnerable citizens.
