Although the unemployment rate in Wilton is only 3.7%, signifying a healthy labor market with a rate well below the state and national averages, there are still people who are struggling financially. This is evident by the fact the Wilton Woman’s Club delivered 50 Thanksgiving dinners to homebound residents and Wilton Social Services distributed almost 70 holiday baskets to people in need of a Thanksgiving dinner.
If food is in short supply for some of us, then toys surely are, too. Once again, the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program is collecting new, unwrapped toys for less fortunate children in Wilton and neighboring towns. And once again, Wilton businesses and organizations have stepped up to act as drop-off locations where people may bring a donation.
