    TIME TO HELP OUR CHRISTMAS FAMILY Each year IHSM helps a Milford family celebrate the holidays, and this year the family is a very special one. Their wishes and needs are very modest, and include food, clothing, books, and music. The Christmas Family Committee will be collection donations up to and at the November 25th meeting, and suggests the following: Cash or gift cards (ShopRite, Stop and Shop, Walmart, Barnes and Noble, Burlington Coat Factory, and Bob’s Clothing Stores).* Shopping will be done early in December, and the family will receive their gifts in time for a joyous holiday. You may contact Eileen Craig at (203) 878-9262 to drop off donations, or bring them to the November 25th meeting. Thank you in advance for your continued generosity in support of this worthwhile project.
