    Additional Shopping Day * Lisbon Landing (Super Walmart) *

    At the beginning of each month, (normally the 1st or 2nd Tuesday), we offer a shopping trip to Lisbon Landing. Each trip is limited to 9 people and shoppers are limited to a maximum of 4 bags (due to space constraints).

    The bus will get you to Lisbon for 10 AM and will pick you up at 12:30 p.m.  The bus will NOT be available to drop you off from store-to-store.  You will be dropped off and picked up in front of the Walmart Superstore.

    The bus departs the Senior Center at 9:30 a.m.  Please call the Senior Center to reserve your seat.  If you need a ride into the Center, you must book a ride on the 8:30 bus as well.

    Shopping dates are subject to change.  Please check the VOICES newsletter (pg. 10)

    or call the Senior Center to confirm monthly shopping date.  (860) 889-5960

     

    Adopt-A-Family

    Norwich Human Services and Norwich Youth and Family Services are seeking individuals and organizations that are willing to adopt one or more families for our “Adopt-A-Family” program this Holiday season.  All Families are from the Norwich area, have been screened by a case manager, are known to be in need and most are living below the poverty level.

    Thanks to the kind and generous support in the past by individuals and organizations such as you, we are able to make holidays more joyful for many young children in the community.  If you or your organization would be willing to adopt at least one family, we would greatly appreciate your support.

    You may contact us at (860) 823-3778 or by email at NHS@cityofnorwich.org

    Please indicate the family size you would be willing to sponsor.  You or your organization will then be sent information about a family in need.  The information will include the first names, ages, sizes and special interests of each family member.

    Please consider sharing this request with your family and friends to help us identify new sponsors.

    Thank you!  Your kindness will not be forgotten.
