Featured Programs:

2020 Holiday Aid Program

Due to the current situation regarding health and safety concerns, the normally bustling activity of the Holiday  Aid Program has been curtailed, out of caution, for this year.

We have temporarily shifted to distributing food store gift cards for holiday meals and Walmart and Target gift cards for clothing and toys.

The need is greater than ever this year. Please donate!

The Department of Human Services’ Holiday Aid Program assists disadvantaged Greenwich families and individuals at Thanksgiving and Christmas by providing food baskets, food vouchers or gift cards, toys, clothing and other gift items.
