Thanks to the generosity and kindness of the community, Neighborhood Housing Services of New Britain helped city residents in need stay warm this winter.
The non-profit collected more than 500 pieces of winter wear during its 2nd annual “Winter Snuggled Bundle of Care” Drive.
Many of the clothing items were knit, sewed or crocheted by community members. Hygiene products also were collected.
Senior centers in Rocky Hill, Berlin and Plainville, as well as South Church in New Britain, donated a substantial amount of items to the drive and assisted in other ways.
The “Winter Snuggled Bundle of Care” Drive was started in 2020 as a way to address the need for warm winter wear for children and families of New Britain schools.
For the past 43 years, Neighborhood Housing Services of New Britain has helped create neighborhoods of choice through a comprehensive development strategy that includes creating first time homeownership opportunities, offering quality rental options, services to educate and guide households toward increased financial stability, and working with residents to improve their community.
