Poignant service shines spotlight on Middletown-area's homeless

By Jeff Mill, The Middletown Press

It's not that they are invisible. It's just all too often, too many people simply choose not to see the homeless. That applies especially to the homeless who die. But for a combination of groups in Middletown, forgetting the dead is simply unacceptable.

And so Thursday afternoon, the Church of the Holy Trinity on Main Street was filled with a diverse group of residents who gathered to remember 14 people from the Greater Middletown area who died in 2015 during the annual Middlesex County Homeless Persons' Memorial Service and Candlelight Vigil.

The memorial service gained added poignancy from the setting, amid the muted glory of the 19th-century Episcopal church. Read more in the MiddletownPress

Thank you everyone who participated, volunteered, and spread cheer at our annual holiday dinner for our guests!

150 shared a great gourmet meal prepared by our chef and served by our crew at our gracious host-site, First Church of Christ. Guests received candy and a gift card donated by folks like you in the community. Some took to the microphone to share a special song, others clapped, tapped and sang along to old time carols!

Game nights are back, the second Friday of the month at 7 at the soup kitchen. Play cards, chess, checkers, etc. Free to all!

THANK YOU
Pack a Pickup with Proteins
Employees at Direct Energy Solar of 54 Tuttle Place, Middletown got creative if not a little messy as they raised $290 for St. Vincent de Paul recently. Event coordinator Paul Hogan sold them balloons filled with paint and encouraged them to hurl them (via slingshot) onto this giant canvas! Thank you, Direct Energy Solar! Do you have a unique way to raise funds and awareness for SVDM that we can share with our folks? Please contact Tanja, 860-344-0097 x13.
Pack a Pickup with Proteins
A big thank you to the local chapters of Altrusa International of Central CT, Civitan Club of Middletown and Soroptomist of CT River Valley for their second annual and tremendously successful "Pack a Pickup with Proteins for the Pantry" Food Drive at Stop and Shop!

Birthday Hall of Fame Donors

Here's another great kid who asked for non-perishable food items instead of birthday gifts and then donated them to St. Vincent de Paul.

Thank you to Kasen Mehta of Middlefield, who just turned 11 and donated over 150 items of food he received instead of birthday gifts and a $100 of his birthday money to people in need! This is the second year Kasen has done this. His friend Tatum Hultgren, 10, also of Middlefield, helped Kasen bring in the items.
Kasen
Last year, Alex of Middletown started this great idea when he donated his "birthday gifts" to the hungry. What a great example these kids are making to help others less fortunate in our community! Instead of gifts, why not have your friends bring food items to your next party for Amazing Grace Food Pantry? Call Kathleen or Charles for to arrange drop off or pick up! 860-347-3222
