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 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 and will continue to benefit our clients during the year.

Your ongoing support over the years means so much to our department. We rely on local organizations such as yours to help us provide our clients with the vital services they need. Thanks, again, for helping us help others. I look forward to continuing our relationship for years to come.

With best wishes for a happy and healthy holiday season!

Ali Ramsteck, LCSW, Director
