Wilton COVID Update: Thankful in the Time of COVID, Case Data and Step-Up CT

Social Services and Wilton Residents Deliver Thanksgiving Dinners to Locals

On Thanksgiving Day, several awesome volunteers will deliver Thanksgiving dinner to residents who are alone or otherwise would not have a dinner.  

The dinners, organized by Social Services, are possible due to the generosity of Wilton residents.  This is just one example of the many kind and generous acts by Wilton residents and businesses throughout the pandemic.

Helping Wilton Seniors

To those who made masks, delivered groceries and medicine to the elderly, donated to the Food Pantry, delivered meals to healthcare workers, provided gift cards and treats to our emergency responders, donated PPE, checked in with those living alone or neighbors, provided music outside our congregate living facilities, painted rocks and sidewalks with messages of hope, cheered for grads and birthdays or performed the hundreds of other acts of kindness, thank you!  You are what makes Wilton such a wonderful community, especially now.
