March 2019 Ongoing Programs
- New Reach (Formerly New Haven Home Recovery): Items to donate include: Warm gloves as well as new socks and underwear for women and children from babies to 13 yrs old. NEW bedding only; pillows, bedspreads, sheets, towels. Also needed are diapers, wipes, bottles and toiletries unused and sealed. Please don’t drop off used toiletries or bedding. Donation for furniture : At this time New Reach is accepting small kitchen tables and chairs, dressers and beds. No sofas at this time. It is basically a one man show with a few volunteers and space is very limited. It can take up to a few weeks for a pick up so please put in your request accordingly. For any questions please call Fran Parness at 2034307362.
- L.Keefe Center: School children in our area continue to need school supplies (notebooks, backpacks, crayons, pencils, etc.). Please no binders or loose leaf notebooks! We are looking for new or very slightly used items. Donations can be placed in the School Supplies bin, or donate to the Diane Kaplan Social Action Fund and we will buy the supplies needed. Many thanks! Contact Randi at 203-248-0286.
- Toiletry Collection for Homeless: We continue to collect toiletries for many agencies. The basket has been filling with your generous donations each week. We still can use small containers of shampoo, lotions, toothpaste, toothbrushes, etc. Please donate only new or unused toiletries.
- Downtown Evening Soup Kitchen:
Place donations in the hallway bins if you are able….if not, make a donation to the Diane Kaplan Social Action Fund. We will do the shopping for you!
Our committee thanks you for your continued support,
