Once again, the Torrington Area Youth Service Bureau has their Christmas Wish List of needy children available. In conjunction with the Department of Children & Families (DCF), Friendly Hands Food Bank, Department of Social Services and Youth Service Bureau clients we are seeking your generosity in helping provide gifts for children who otherwise might not receive one.
The agencies collectively have over 600 children who have asked Santa for a special gift. These local children, between the ages of infancy and 18 years, are in foster homes, institutions or homes experiencing financial hardship. All of these children need to know that the spirit and magic of Christmas will not forget them.
Please call from today until December 15th, for a child’s name, age and gift preference. Your holiday will be a bit brighter with the knowledge that you have shared your generosity with one less fortunate.
Phone the Torrington Area Youth Service at 860 496-0356 ext. 9,weekdays between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.
