Make a Difference: Drop-In Learning Center

WHO: Children over age 13

AGENCY: Drop-In Learning Center

THEIR SITUATION: Middle school and high school children support their families by watching their younger siblings while their parents work during the COVID-19 pandemic. Families are having a difficult time meeting everyday needs, let alone purchasing Christmas gifts for their older children.

WHAT TO GIVE: Winter clothing, sweatshirts, socks, shoes, boots, hats and gloves — youth clothing sizes medium, large adult men and women. Walmart gift cards, gas cards and grocery store gift cards also would be appreciated.

TO DONATE: Call Reona Dyess at the Drop-In Learning Center, (860) 442-4466. Items may be brought to Drop-In Learning Center at 76 Federal St., New London, CT, 06320, or mailed to Drop-In Learning Center, P.O. Box 848, New London, CT 06320.
