Santa Anonymous RSVP Boot Project

TVCCA RSVP Program is sponsoring its 17th annual Santa Boot Drive for Southern New London County, Tolland, and Windham Counties. Senior Resources Area Agency on Aging is covering Northern New London County.

This year RSVP is partnering with several agencies and businesses, Senior Resources Area Agency on Aging, TEEG, Killingly Parks and Recreation Department, Care and Share of East Lyme and Stonington Human Services have combined resources to meet area needs, these agencies are lending a hand and contributing significantly to this worth-while project.

We are working with local public schools, social service agencies and Head Start** programs to identify elemenatary and preschool children who are in need of winter boots. Once we have been given the childrens' first names, age and shoe size the quest for boots begins and we set out to find each child warm winter boots.

Any assitance is appreciated. Individuals and businesses can help in the following ways:

  • Contact us and we will assign you a gender, age and boot size. You purchase the boots and drop them off to us You may wrap them as well but this is not necessary.
  • Monetary donations toward the purchase of boots are also appreciated. We will make sure that the donated funds are used to purchase boots.

Last year over 800 pairs of boots were distributed in Southern New London County and over 400 pairs in Windham and Tolland Counties.
