Make a Difference- Pawcatuck Neighborhood Center
MAKE A DIFFERENCE: PAWCATUCK NEIGHBORHOOD CENTER
Who: Jennifer, a recent widow, and her six children
Agency: Pawcatuck Neighborhood Center
Their situation: Jennifer experienced a sudden and sad loss with the death of her husband in the spring. Together, they had a happy family of six children now aged 3, 6, 10, 15, 17, and 18.
What to give: Winter coats and boots for all the children. Gift cards from JC Penney, Sears or Wal-Mart would be very helpful, along with Stop & Shop gift cards for groceries. The children like Legos, board games, card games, Play-Doh, and music. The family could use new sheets — one full-size set, and five single sets (no color preference) — as well as one breakfast sandwich maker, gas cards, gift cards for clothing, and musical toys for the younger children.
To donate: Bring items to Pawcatuck Neighborhood Center, 27 Chase St., Pawcatuck, CT, 06379, from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday or 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. this Saturday. Call ahead to (860) 599-3285, ext. 14 for Vicki or ext. 10 for Donna.
