During Lent, we will be collecting items for welcome baskets to be distributed at the The Albert J. Solmit Children’s Center in Middletown, CT.  The baskets are given to youth when they are admitted to the center, helping them to adjust to their new environment.

The welcome baskets contain items such as:  shampoo, dental care items, deodorant, lip balm, books, stuffed animals, and gum.  A complete list of items and corresponding sign up sheet is posted in the HCC Social Room.

Welcome baskets will be assembled in April.

For more information, contact either Carol Matregrano or Ginny Evensen.
