To the Editor:

There is a Secret Santa in our midst.

We thank the anonymous donor who recently made a most generous gift of $10,000 to the New Milford Community Fuel Bank.

This is a huge help, going directly to local families who resort to buying diesel fuel, 10 gallons at a clip, when they cannot afford an oil delivery. On behalf of our community, we are very grateful to you.

I'd like to offer a challenge.

On Jan. 13, the town's social services, senior services and Parks & Recreation departments will sponsor the second annual "Cold Homes, Warm Hearts 5K Walk for the Fuel Bank."

Let's see if our community can match this amazing donation by raising another $10,000 on the day of the walk.

Will you join me?

With much appreciation...
