“Our annual Share the Warmth campaign helps us the physical needs of our community’s most vulnerable members and lets them know they are not forgotten,” commented Acts 4 Ministry, Inc. Board of Directors Chairman, John Bishop of Woodbury.

“Each year, our goal”, added Sarah E. DiMeo-Carabetta, Acts 4 Ministry Executive Director, “is to ensure that people in need of assistance have warm clothing during the entire cold season. Currently, we very much need winter coats and jackets for men sizes L to 3X, for boys’ and girls’ sizes 14-16, girl’s pants size 10, and girl’s tops size 8 and 16, and men’s jeans size 28-36 waist in all lengths, and men’s shoe sizes 10-13, plus gently worn clothing, coats, and boots for women.

“We also seek winter weather items for men, women, and children in all sizes, including clean long-sleeve tops and T-shirts, hoodie sweatshirts, winter boots, leggings, jeans, pajamas for men and women in all sizes, pajamas for children in sizes 6 to 20, boys winter jackets in all sizes. Socks are also very much needed along with belts, underwear & undershirts, slippers, sneakers, winter hats, gloves, and scarves, bras for women, onesies, snowsuits, and sweaters for all.”

For the past four years, Thomaston Savings Bank has supported the Share the Warmth Drive through an employee collection and is doing so again this year. Cheryl Lindstrom (pictured), AVP/Community Outreach Officer of Thomaston Savings Bank commented, “Our bank and employees are proud to support Acts 4 Ministry’s ambitions of inspiring acts of love. We thank the Ministry for providing dignified, thoughtful, caring support and services to those most in need in our community.”

“Our continual mission,” explained DiMeo-Carabetta, “is to provide individuals or families who have experienced a life devastating event with opportunities to feel loved as they rebuild their lives with basic needs by coming to our facility to personally select clothing, dishes, glassware, furnishings, and other basic needs at no charge.”

The organization partners with churches, social service agencies, and public schools to help identify and serve people in the context of the broader community regardless of their faith, race, creed, national origin, or willingness to participate in religious activities.

Acts 4 Ministry’s retail store environment provides people with immediate basic living needs and the ability to select clothing, furniture, and household items at no cost. “Individuals and families are often referred to us by other charitable organizations,” explained DiMeo-Carabetta. “In our retail store, they experience an atmosphere that preserves their dignity and allows them to personally select what they need. This is a respectful environment where everyone is treated with caring support.”

To provide monetary donations to the “Share the Warmth” drive, mail checks payable to Acts 4 Ministry to PO Box 4524, Waterbury CT 06704, or visit http://www.acts4.org and click on the ‘donate’ button.

Can Telehealth and Extended Hours Help You Get Better? https://news.hamlethub.com/southbury/life/5996-can-telehealth-and-extended-hours-help-you-get-better5996-can-telehealth-and-extended-hours-help-you-get-better https://news.hamlethub.com/southbury/life/5996-can-telehealth-and-extended-hours-help-you-get-better5996-can-telehealth-and-extended-hours-help-you-get-better

If we learned two things from the pandemic, it’s the importance of accommodation and flexibility. We all have busy and complex schedules which can make in-person healthcare appointments difficult – especially if they are only offered during work hours. During the pandemic, many practitioners adapted creative ways to still see patients out of necessity. It is these alternative appointment options, such as telehealth visits and extended hours, that keep many of us healthier today – even in a post-pandemic world!

According to the Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Journal, telehealth, especially for physical therapy, has worked wonders for patients. Gone are the days when you would have to cancel an appointment due to weather challenges, not having a ride to your appointment, or other obstacles preventing you from receiving care. Telehealth appointments have allowed patients to have quicker access to care and have allowed practitioners to treat patients within a larger radius of the office.

Research shows that, on average, patients travel about 34 minutes for a healthcare appointment and, as a result, spend 90 fewer minutes working on appointment days. This can be a burden to some, especially if a practitioner recommends multiple appointments. The addition of telehealth and extended hours not only eliminates these obstacles but can improve a patient’s health outcomes without negatively affecting the quality of care received.

RVNAhealth’s Rehabilitation and Wellness Center offers extended hours Monday through Thursday (open from 8:20 am to 7:00 pm) as well as telehealth and hybrid (both in-person and telehealth) options to help you get well regardless of scheduling obstacles.

To schedule an appointment or inquire about therapy services, please call: 203.438.7862 or email: rehabcenter@rvnahealth.org.

Writing Into and Through the Winter Season https://news.hamlethub.com/southbury/events/6001-writing-into-and-through-the-winter-season6001-writing-into-and-through-the-winter-season https://news.hamlethub.com/southbury/events/6001-writing-into-and-through-the-winter-season6001-writing-into-and-through-the-winter-season

Winter is the season when it is natural to turn inward. The shorter days and colder temperatures keep us inside for longer periods which gives us an opportunity to rest, reflect, and renew. The stillness of the winter landscape can become a springboard for venturing deeper into our interior lives.

In this three-week session leading up to the Winter Solstice, students will explore winter themes through writing. For inspiration, we'll use art, music, and poetry. We'll write about the moon and snow and all thing wintery. All genres of writing--poetry, fiction, and non-fiction--are welcome.

Come and be warmed up by the company of other writers during the onset of the cold season. This class will give you tools to keep writing all the way to spring, and beyond.
