Editor’s Note: It’s the holiday season and for many, that means something more than finding the perfect gift or going to parties. For social service groups or charities, it’s the time when they reach out for that extra bit of help. Over the next several weeks Patch will profile some of the charitable groups working in your towns and tell you what they need.
Connecticut Association of Foster and Adoptive Parents
The agency, located on the Silas Deane Highway, provides support services, training and advocacy for licensed foster and adoptive families statewide. In addition, the agency provides support, training and advocacy for all licensed foster and adoptive families in the state, and offers a Children's Hope Fund that allows it to grant wishes for foster children and adoptive youth.
WHAT THEY NEED:
Gifts or gift cards for older youth; mittens, hats, pajamas, books, toys, etc.
Monetary donation for the Children's Hope Fund that provides funding for opportunities, such as music lessons, sports camp, dance lessons, scholar trips, etc.
