The holiday season has arrived, and it’s of great importance to the Human Services Department to be able to assist Cheshire residents in need.
HSD will be continuing the Adopt-a-Family Holiday Program this year, although with changes. It is understood that many individuals and organizations prefer to donate gifts and toys, but out of concern for safety of recipients and all others during this time, we are limiting physical donations of gifts.
Donations in the form of gift cards will be able to meet the needs of those facing financial hardship during the holidays. Several popular retailers are Target, Walmart, Marshalls, Dunkin, Kohl’s, Amazon, and local establishments.
Contact the Human Services Department office by Dec. 12 if interested in donating or if in need of assistance. Contact Kristen Schechter at Cheshire Human Services at (203) 271-6690 with any questions you may have.
