In the tradition of New England communities that care for households experiencing a lack of resources to make their holiday happy and fulfilling, especially for their children, HARTFORD-NORWICH HOLIDAY BASKET HELPERS has for over 30 years worked to brighten lives of children and seniors during the holidays. The organization has always been and continues to be staffed completely by volunteers.

The program is conceived to soften the pinch of poverty and its companion feeling of isolation and alienation. We acknowledge that charity programs like this one are never able to get at the root causes of poverty or to make up for the financial shortfall experienced when the only income for a household is from public assistance or minimum wage jobs. It has been our experience over the years, however, that there is a common sense of joy engendered through it for both the sponsors and the recipients.
