Every year during the holidays, the Department of Human Services provides toys, gifts, and a variety of retail and restaurant gift cards to Darien residents who are struggling financially.   Last year, over 150 children and seniors in town benefited from their neighbor’s generosity and found a surprise under the tree.   Unfortunately, with the economy still uncertain, many families and seniors are having difficulty making ends meet. Darien's Department of Human Services is  looking for people to help make someone’s holiday a little brighter by adopting a family or senior in town or by donating a gift card to local restaurants or retail or food stores.
