Over the next few months, the Paradiso Insurance Team will be collecting all kinds of clothing for children in foster care, DCF care or for children in lower-income families who need help this year. Hillary, our personal line manager, came up with this wonderful idea last year and it was such a success that we wanted to help bring joy back this year!
What can you donate?
We ask people who want to donate to provide new or gently used winter items such as jackets, socks, slippers, pajamas, blankets, hats, gloves, gloves, snow pants or snow boots. The goal is to help keep children warm during these cold winter months
Where do I take my donations?
We ask that donations be made at our office, at 8 E. Main Street in Stafford Springs – just ask for Hillary! We would also like to get a picture of everyone who donates so that we can properly thank them for their contribution on our social media pages. But do not worry, those who are camera shy can always choose not to be in the picture and we will post a picture of your donation and thank you by name.
What happens if I can not make my donation?
If you are unable to make your donations at the office at 8 East Main Street in Stafford Springs, everyone in the office will be more than willing to come and collect these donations for you. Simply call our office and ask for Hillary and we will be happy to set a pick-up time so we can come and pick up your items.
We have also had some people choose to buy their donations online via Amazon, Walmart, Kohl & # x20AC; 39; s, etc. and choose to have them sent directly to our office. This process is absolutely welcome and can make it much easier for those who do not live nearby, but still want to join. We just ask that you leave a note in the package or call us to let us know that it is on its way and that we will know who to thank for their wonderful donations.
How long is this going on?
Although we want to give these wonderful donations to the children for Christmas so that they have something to open on Christmas day, we will still receive donations also in January and February. In this way, more children can get help and we can keep the holiday atmosphere alive, well into the new year!
At Paradiso Insurance, giving back to our society is at the heart of our corporate culture. It is important for us to help those who are worse off, especially during the winter months when the temperature drops below freezing. We want to thank everyone in advance for helping us bring smiles to so many children in need this holiday season. Together we can ensure that all children are well-dressed to protect them from the cold this winter season. For more information or if you have any questions, please call us at 860-684-5270.
