Human Services – 11/18/22

Human Services – 11/18/22

Boy Scout Food Drive:  Many thanks to Woodbridge Boy Scouts of America Troops 63, 907, and 410 for their efforts to plan and execute a remarkable food drive to benefit the Food Pantry at Woodbridge Human Services.  Special thanks to Scout Master Bill Nardini and Aron and Ben Smith for their wonderful organizing of this event.  This is also a reflection of the VERY generous residents of Woodbridge who donated over 3,500 pounds of non-perishable food which will help their neighbors this winter.  The department also acknowledges the adult and student volunteers assisting with the task of sorting and shelving all this food by date and category.

Energy Assistance Program:  Qualifying residents may schedule an appointment to apply for the 2022-2023 CT Energy Assistance Program administered by TEAM, INC.  For more information regarding this program, please call Judi Young at 203-389-3429.

Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA):  Tuesdays, 9 am – 12 pm, VITA is a free tax preparation service available to low-income individuals, people who have a disability, those who speak limited English, and qualifying seniors.  For a list of required documents and to schedule an appointment, call 203-389-3429.  The program will begin February 7 and run through April 11 at the Woodbridge Human Services Department.  Services will once again be provided both virtually and in-person.
