Employees at Direct Energy Solar of 54 Tuttle Place, Middletown got creative if not a little messy as they raised $290 for St. Vincent de Paul recently. Event coordinator Paul Hogan sold them balloons filled with paint and encouraged them to hurl them (via slingshot) onto this giant canvas! Thank you, Direct Energy Solar! Do you have a unique way to raise funds and awareness for SVDM that we can share with our folks? Please contact Tanja, 860-344-0097 x13.
Helping Hands Club in East Hampton
Hooray to Helping Hands Club in East Hampton (children in grades 1-3) for their great gifts! They made 10 blankets and several beautifully decorated bags filled with pillows, toiletries, homemade cookies, and other snacks. If you or your group would like to donate items, check out our items needed page.

Birthday Hall of Fame Donors

Here's another great kid who asked for non-perishable food items instead of birthday gifts and then donated them to St. Vincent de Paul.

Thank you to Kasen Mehta of Middlefield, who just turned 11 and donated over 150 items of food he received instead of birthday gifts and a $100 of his birthday money to people in need! This is the second year Kasen has done this. His friend Tatum Hultgren, 10, also of Middlefield, helped Kasen bring in the items.
Kasen
Last year, Alex of Middletown started this great idea when he donated his "birthday gifts" to the hungry. What a great example these kids are making to help others less fortunate in our community! Instead of gifts, why not have your friends bring food items to your next party for Amazing Grace Food Pantry? Call Kathleen or Charles for to arrange drop off or pick up! 860-347-3222
