Letter: Person-to-Person thankful for Thanksgiving All-Stars

To the Editors:

Thanks to the enormous generosity of so many in the community, 700 families enjoyed a bountiful meal on Thanksgiving Day that included turkey, stuffing, gravy, fresh produce, canned goods and desserts.

Individuals, businesses, churches, organizations and schools donated turkeys, stuffing mix, supermarket gift cards, reusable grocery bags and more.

Because of this generosity — from the Girl Scout troops that accepted the Instant Potatoes Challenge and collected 500 boxes, to the young woman who raised money and purchased 200 aluminum roasting pans, to the companies that organized food drives, and the postal workers who picked-up grocery bags filled with donated food — P2P utilized community resources to feed our neighbors.

And the turkey and fixings were sorted, bagged and distributed by corporate volunteers and elected officials.

So, thank you to everyone who made a difference in the lives of 700 families. You truly are Thanksgiving All-Stars. Wilton donors and volunteers included the Wilton Postal Food Drive, Tauck, and state Rep. Gail Lavielle (R-143).

With the support of the community, P2P helps our neighbors in need.
