In the spirit of the holidays, Danbury City Hall hosted two donation boxes in its lobby.
The City of Danbury supported the Danbury Firefighters Local 801 Canned Food Drive and the Get Downtown Danbury Winter Clothing Drive.
To go one step further this year, Mayor Boughton introduced the Giving Tree where City Hall employees can donate to a different organization each holiday. Employees put their names on ornaments that decorated our tree in the lobby.
This year, donations went to Family & Children’s Aid. Mayor Boughton wishes all a Happy Holiday and a joyous New Year!
CANNED FOOD DRIVE
The International Association of Firefighters, Danbury Professional Firefighters Union Local 801, conducted a “CANNED FOOD DRIVE” on behalf of the Salvation Army’s “HOLIDAY FOOD BANK” and “HOLIDAY BASKETS”.
