To the Editor:

We are grateful for the outpouring of support and generosity shown this holiday season from the Greater Kent community which enabled us to assist dozens of Kent families in need during Thanksgiving and Christmas.

We especially wish to thank the Connecticut Food Bank, Davis IGA, the many elves, First Congregational Church of Kent, House of Books, individual donors to the food bank, Kent Center School and Kent Chamber of Commerce.

Also, Kent Community Fund, Kent Lions Club, Kent resident state Trooper Andrew Fisher, Kent School, Kent School Early Learning Center, Kent Volunteer Fire Department and the Marion Wm. and Alice Edwards Fund, a fund of the Community Foundation of Northwest Connecticut.

Also, Marvelwood School, "NASCAR Dave" and Sunday in the Country, Sacred Heart Church, St. Andrew's Church, South Kent School and the state police at Troop L.

We appreciate the opportunity to work with many wonderful and dedicated organizations and volunteers to help bring the holidays to our community.
