Make a Difference: Montville Senior & Social Services
WHO: Judy, her two children, and her elderly mother
AGENCY: Montville Senior & Social Services
THEIR SITUATION: Judy is a single mom who works part time/full time (depending on the week) and cares for her school-aged children along with her ailing mother. She tries very hard to make ends meet, though she doesn't always make it and has reluctantly reached out for assistance. She is fortunate to have some caring neighbors who help keep an eye on her mother and children while she is at work. Montville Senior & Social Services have been able to help with some specific services, though Judy and her family could use help for the holidays.
WHAT TO GIVE: Judy could use gift cards to Stop & Shop, gas gift cards and gift cards to Walmart, CVS or Walgreens. For the holidays, Judy's mother could use a small robe and small slippers, crossword puzzle books and game books. For the children, the 13-year-old could use a blue comforter and sheets and large sweatshirts. They are a Cowboys fan who likes Polo, Tommy Hilfiger, American Eagle and Nike. The 7-year-old could use a pink (or purple) comforter and sheets, size 8 or 9 clothing tops, LOL Surprise Dolls, squishys and arts and crafts from places like Target, Walmart and Gap.
HOW TO DONATE: Any checks or cards can be mailed to Montville Senior & Social Services at the Montville Senior Center, 12 Maple Ave., Uncasville, CT 06382.
