Every year the Community Services Department for the Town of Orange organizes a gift-giving event for our Resident Families and Elderly in Orange who are in need. The identities of our recipients are kept confidential for their privacy. We are asking Orange residents to adopt one of our families/elderly residents or to donate whatever they can to help us out this year.
The families that participate are asked to send us wish lists from their children to help our sponsors with ideas for gift giving, whether it’s a toy, clothing, and a book or gift card. We also request grocery gift cards for perishable items and decorated food baskets, containers, boxes, bags, etc. for our recipients to help them with their food needs.
We will have cutoff dates of November 18th for Thanksgiving and December 16th for Christmas; these are for delivering your donations to our office.
If you would rather send a monetary donation you can donate to the Community Assistance Fund which covers all programs we have in our department. Send your check to The Town of Orange Community Services Department at High Plains Community Center, 525 Orange Center Road, Orange, CT 06477. Checks are Payable to: “Treasurer Town of Orange”.
If you would like to participate in this great cause please contact: Kim Callahan at (203) 891-4788 Monday thru Fridays 8:30am until 4:30pm.
