Gifts Needed for Adopted Kids and Families

The Connecticut Association of Foster and Adoptive Parents is seeking hats, mittens, books and pajamas.

 

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.
