To the Editor:
The Warren Good Neighbor Fund and Warren Social Services would like to express their thanks to The Community Foundation of Northwest Connecticut, the Litchfield Women's Club, the Warren Church confirmation class and Warren Girl Scouts for their support of Warren residents in need during the holiday season.
The Community Foundation of Northwest Connecticut's Critical Needs/Holiday Grant, of which Warren Good Neighbor Fund was a recipient, provided many struggling seniors and families with food, gasoline, and other basic needs over this holiday season.
In addition to providing complete Thanksgiving and holiday meals to many Warren residents, the Litchfield Women's Club sponsored 11 children with gifts.
An additional six children received holiday gifts, hats and mittens through individual sponsors, "secret elves" from the Warren community.
The support of these organizations and individuals made it possible for many Warren residents to experience the joy of the holiday season and to begin the New Year with hope. Best wishes for the New Year.
