To the Editors:

This summer the Wilton Kiwanis Club helped 10 families to send their children to summer camp. Very often our clients’ children cannot partake in some of the traditional extracurricular fun that most of us take for granted for our children.

When scheduled activities are the most common way young people meet each other and socialize, parents without those discretionary funds to pay for these experiences are forced to leave their kids out of important opportunities to be with their friends and make new ones.

Wilton Social Services is grateful to the Kiwanis Club for their generosity and foresight in recognizing this need in our community. The Wilton Kiwanis Club is a local chapter of Kiwanis International, an organization dedicated to changing the world, one child and one community at a time.
