Ridgefield's Evelyn C Peeler Children's Holiday Gift Fund will make the season merry for local kids in need


Holiday Gifts for Ridgefield Children is the Goal

The holidays are fast approaching and, once again, the Evelyn C Peeler Children's Holiday Gift Fund will help make the holidays brighter for less-fortunate children in Ridgefield. The Fund needs your support! This small all-volunteer organization works closely with Ridgefield Social Services to identify families in need and maintains strict anonymity for the family.

Through the program, the fund committee purchases new clothing based on the family’s needs, often including a winter coat, boots and accessories. The families also receive food certificates to help with their holiday meals. The children's gift wishes are fulfilled with the support of the Toys for Tots, schools, companies and religious groups who work with the organization.

The program has been helping local families during the holidays for 42 years and, more recently, during the summer as well through their Back-To-School program with Squash’s Gift Cards for school supplies and Kohl’s gift cards for clothing.

The program is financially supported by local individuals, The Ridgefield Thrift Shop, Wadsworth Russell Lewis Fund and Anne S. Richardson Fund. Please consider a donation for this year's program. 

Donations may be sent to The Evelyn C. Peeler Children's Holiday Gift Fund, c/o UPS Store, PMB#218, 54 Danbury Road, Ridgefield, CT 06877.

The Evelyn C Peeler Children's Holiday Gift Fund operates under the auspices of the First Congregational Church, Ridgefield, CT as a 501(c)3.
