Letter: ‘Thank you’ to Wilton for food donations

To the Editors:

To Alan Horowitz and the Wilton letter carriers, we are most grateful for your work coordinating the November Postal Food Drive and all the hard work put into collecting 19,000 pounds of food along the postal route. To the people of Wilton, we are most grateful for your generosity. (We collected approximately one pound of food for every man, woman and child living in the Town of Wilton!) The food donated to the P2P Food Pantry will provide your neighbors with food for thousands of needed meals through the end of this year.

Serving Lower Fairfield County communities since 1968, Person-to-Person (P2P) is one of the first places a person can turn to when faced with a crisis. With your support of the Food Pantry, a key component of the Emergency Assistance Program, P2P is able to help individuals and families struggling to maintain the most basic elements of a dignified life. Many people come to us in need of food or clothing, others with an eviction notice or a past-due utility bill in hand. Your generosity helps to ensure that each is provided with concrete assistance coupled with guidance for taking steps towards a more stable future. In all that we do at Person-to-Person, we aim to provide hope, and restore the confidence and dignity that can be threatened by financial crisis.

On behalf of the thousands of individuals and families who will be helped this year by Person-to-Person, thank you for your support.  Thank you for caring.
