Giving Thanks & Giving Back

Friday, December 15, 2023

Every year Waterford Youth and Family Services provides over 500 households with holiday food and gift baskets who have extensive needs.

WHO: Each donor is matched with a family or senior and will be sent a form that includes their basic information, clothing sizes, shoe sizes, and any extra needs that the family may have.

WHAT: Each sponsor receives a wish list that we have vetted and remains within a price range.

HOW: If you would like to be matched with a family or senior, please let us know by scanning the QR code or utilizing this link. Information regarding your family or senior will be sent to you via email within 5 business days of signing up to be a donor.

WHEN: On Friday, December 8th, from 9-5pm, we ask that you please drop off your wish list items to the Waterford Community Center at 24 Rope Ferry Road, Waterford, CT 06385.

OTHER WAYS TO HELP: If you are unable to sponsor a family this year, there are other ways to help! Consider purchasing one of our wish tag items (items that have been requested by families and seniors), hosting a food or toy drive, and donating to the Waterford Community Food Bank. Please help us spread the word by sharing this information with those who may be interested in sponsoring a family or supporting our holiday mission.
