United Way of Western Connecticut is partnering with the Woman’s Club of Greater New Milford to collect food and monetary donations to make Thanksgiving a joyful holiday for 250 hardworking families in need this year to put food on their tables.
Operation Thanksgiving (formerly called Stuff the Gazebo) collects food and monetary donations so that families in need can have all the ingredients for a complete Thanksgiving meal, including a turkey.
Operation Thanksgiving will include a drop-off food collection day at the New Milford Bandstand on November 5 from 9 am to 2 pm. Food items being collected are listed below. Monetary donations are also being accepted on November 5, in the form of cash or checks made out to the Woman’s Club of Greater New Milford. Checks can also be mailed to: Woman’s Club of Greater New Milford, P.O. Box 225, New Milford, CT 06776.
Monetary donations can also be made online.
