The following is a reader-submitted Letter to the Editor. The contents, comments and opinions are not necessarily those of Patch (though in this instance, thanking New Canaan organizations for their support within the community totally rocks):
A Holiday Shout Out!!!
Words can not express our gratitude to the New Canaan Fire Department, NCL
Canaan Parish Chapter, and Stewart's Market for their holiday spirit.
Department purchased 15 festive Thanksgiving meals from Stewart's Market, and NCL
delivered them to seniors who were alone on Thanksgiving. Many seniors find the
holidays can be the loneliest time of year as they may not have any family or
are forgotten in the hustle & bustle of the season.
For this reason, the
Department of Human Services ramps up a number of programs to reach seniors in
the community. The meals were appreciated by all who received them. The best
gift is the Gift of Giving during the holidays!
THANK YOU to our friends that warmed the hearts of our seniors & made this program a success: New Canaan Fire Dept, Walter Stewart's and NCL Canaan Parish Chapter.Debra Casey
