Three programs help our clients and their families have a happy holiday.
Dove Program: This program has been coordinated by Person-to-Person for more than 40 years and provides a full day of food at the holidays for approximately 800 seniors or families. Local churches display paper doves representing a family or individual in need. Congregants then choose a dove, shop for the groceries listed and wrap them all up in large Christmas boxes. Twenty churches in the surrounding area participate.
Toy Store: A Holiday “store” is set up for clients who have visited the Clothing Center at least six times during the year. New age-appropriate toys and books are displayed so clients can “shop” for a free gift and book for their child.
Be-A-Santa: Employees of Lower Fairfield County businesses participate in this program by fulfilling requests for clothing and other essentials. These are purchased and donated to Person-to-Person for distribution to clients throughout the year.
