With the generous support of our families, friends, area businesses and organizations the money we raised during this event will be used in the Wolcott community to enrich the lives of children and families served by the Junior Women’s Club of Wolcott.

November represents the beginning of the “Giving Thanks” season and our club has a lot to be thankful for this time of year.  We are sponsoring our sixth Annual “Vote Against Hunger”.  We are requesting that voters donate non-perishable food items on Election Day, November 2nd.  This event will benefit the Wolcott Food Pantry.  Collection boxes will be in the voting poll areas.  Please remember to attend The Veteran’s Day Ceremony on the Green, held 11/11, at 11:00 AM.

The Junior Women’s Club of Wolcott is sponsoring our 34th Annual Toys for Tots and Teens Program for Wolcott families. This project is requiring community effort as we work through cooperation, contribution, and coordination of schools, churches, businesses, service organizations, and volunteers, as well as incorporating all the safety protocols of the COVID 19.   We work diligently to give assistance to Wolcott families facing difficult times and hopefully bring a little joy into their homes during this Christmas Season.  Last year 19 families; 27 children and 15 Teens benefited directly from this program.  All toys must be new and unwrapped.  Look for our donation boxes at our Wolcott business locations. Letters have been mailed to businesses and organizations seeking monetary donations.  All monetary donations will help us provide gift cards for teenage siblings.  Each year we try to provide the teens with gift cards so they can do their own shopping.  Donations should be sent to Junior Women’s Club of Wolcott, PO Box 6116, Wolcott CT 06716.  We are very thankful to everyone who has supported this program in the past and hope the town’s generosity will continue again this year.  An application will be included at the bottom of this article. Applications must be returned by 12/5 and completed by all families requesting help.  Santa’s appearance at the Annual Holiday Tree Lighting on November 28th.  will be a delight to all of the children and young at heart! Everyone is invited and we are requesting that the public can bring a new/unwrapped toy to be donated to the Toys for Tots & Teens program in Wolcott.

The Junior Women’s Club of Wolcott meets on the 1st Wednesday of every month from September-June via ZOOM for now at 7 pm.  Our meetings are open to all women over the age of 18, who are interested in doing volunteer work in our community.
