Stuff-a-Bus Donation Drive to Help Area Seniors in Need

Brandywine Living of Litchfield and the Town of Litchfield Social Services Department are partnering to help local seniors in need during the month of July by sponsoring a Stuff-A-Bus donation drive.

It becomes increasingly tough for some senior citizens in our community to be able to provide for themselves, as most only live on social security. Help us provide for those who are less fortunate in our community. All donated items will be given to seniors who are in need in our local Litchfield community through the Town of Litchfield Social Services Department. For more information regarding the Town of Litchfield Social Services Department please contact Philip Birkett at (860) 567-7564.

Donations can be dropped off from July 1 until July 31, Sunday - Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Brandywine Living at Litchfield, 19 Constitution Way, Litchfield, CT.

What Should You Donate?

We are accepting the following NEW items: books, pet supplies, playing cards, small air circulation fans, jackets/lightweight sweaters, crossword puzzle & Sudoku books, household cleaning & bathroom supplies, men’s/women’s pajamas with slippers, non-perishable food items/snacks, adult coloring books, pencils, markers & supplies, adult diapers, wipes & disposable gloves, bathroom towels & washcloths puzzles, personal hygiene items (soap, toothbrushes, denture cleaners, etc.), gift cards for grocery stores, pharmacies, book stores, movies, pet stores, etc.
