Italian club collecting winter gear

The Community Outreach Committee of The North Haven Sons and Daughters of Italy, Lodge 2805, will be collecting new winter outerwear items to be donated to the children supported by ‘r Kids Family Center in Hamden.

The community has been very generous during our previous collections and we hope to continue the success for this great organization, which provides specialized, high-quality services to children in out-of-home care and their families; promoting permanency, safety and stability for children through services to their biological, foster and adoptive families.

We will be collecting mittens, gloves, hats and scarves of any size at the St. Elizabeth of the Trinity Parish Holiday Bazaar to be held at St. Frances Cabrini Church Friday, Nov. 11 from 5 to 8 p.m. and Saturday, Nov. 12 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. 

Another option is to drop off items by Wednesday, Nov. 9 at the following local businesses: Arnold’s Jewelers, 117 Washington Ave., North Haven; Hamden Florist, 2340 Whitney Ave., Hamden; and Nick’s Char-Pit, 22 Middletown Ave., North Haven.
