As the holiday season approaches, Orange Community Services will be busy making and accepting food baskets for families and residents in need. Community services is looking to the community to sponsor the food baskets.
Orange Community Services has an Adopt a Family Program, which looks for sponsors to do gift giving for children from families that have been identified as being in need. They can also use grocery gift cards to distribute and monetary donations also are appreciated
Anyone who is able is asked to consider donating non-perishable food items to the Orange Community Services Food Bank.
In addition, they have a Fuel Bank for residents who need help with fuel that is maintained only by funds donated by the community.
As a matter of fact, all of the Community Assistance Programs are sustained solely by donations and the generosity of the community.
If you would like to be a sponsor or give a donation, call Orange Community Services at 203-891-4788, or stop by their office in the High Plains Community Center located at 525 Orange Center Road, Orange.
