DISTRICT HIGHLIGHTS

happy new yearWe hope everyone had a restful holiday break and we are so happy to welcome everyone back as we kick off 2022!

 

Drive-Thru Winter Festival

Over 150 cars of families attended the Drive-Thru Winter Festival at Shelton High School. Wrapped gifts, hot cocoa cups, cookies, treats, and resources were given out to each car. We were so happy to see cars full of smiling faces as we celebrate the holidays! Thank you to the amazing agencies and volunteers who helped work the event: Shelton Family YMCA, SeaMar, The Youth Connection, and the Sunshine Heart Foundation. A special shout-out goes to the hard-working Upward Bound students who spent days blowing up balloons and who worked the whole night in the cold with big smiles on their faces! And we can’t forget to thank the Grinch for his special visit.
