GREENWICH, Conn. Fifty-three senior citizens living in one of Greenwichs subsidized housing facilities received Christmas gifts of fleece blankets from members of the Mens Committee of the Greenwich United Way.
The men were assisted by their children, who crafted cards for the recipients. The "Santas" arrived in an auto caravan to deliver the blankets and socialize with the seniors on Dec. 17. United Way friends from the Family Center joined in, bringing refreshments and more good cheer.
The Junior United way gathered and distributed gifts of clothing and toys to help local families in need. United Way Board and staff also played Santa, making contributions to purchase 33 gift cards for lower-income teens. The teens will use the cards to buy gifts for themselves, or for family and friends.
