HOLIDAY GIVING (FOOD AND GIFTS)
Every year the department sponsors a Thanksgiving food program which is held the Saturday before Thanksgiving. The department accepts donations of food throughout the year and gifts during the holidays to assist families or individuals with financial need. Donations of new unwrapped toys are accepted as well as gift cards. Families in need can apply for assistance by showing proof of residency and income. They will be assigned a time to come and select gifts for their children. Children must be 18 (still in high school) and under to qualify. Only parents or guardians can receive gifts for their children who reside in Wethersfield.
