To the Editor:

On behalf of the Darien Department of Human Services, I would like to thank you and your fellow Lions Club members for your incredibly generous support of our annual Holiday Gift Giving Program!  The $1,000 in Shop Rite gift cards which you provided will help our families and seniors enjoy a nice holiday meal.

Thanks, again, for helping us help others.  In the spirit of the holidays, we will be able to help make the lives of our neighbors in need a little happier.

With best wishes for a happy holiday season,

Ali Ramsteck, LCSW, Director
