All attendees will receive a gift bag and a chance to win a $200 gift certificate to LCRwestport as well as other door prizes.
The Westport Woman’s Club has been working in tandem with Westport Human Services, to provide bags of food as well as gift cards to those in need on a weekly basis and to help out at the holidays and also hot meals on Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Day to shut-ins in Westport. “Despite an improving economy, many Westport families and elderly are still having difficulty paying for groceries. As many of us have noticed, food costs continue to rise.We are pleased to be able to provide food to the needy in Westport with the help of some very dedicated members as well as the generosity of the community itself.” said Mary Lee Clayton, President of the Westport Woman’s Club.
