Every year the Milford Elks buy, pack and deliver over 200 baskets of food to families in need. The baskets provide enough food for a family of four for many meals.

This year the Elks are giving out 235 baskets.

Money raised also goes towards a hot Christmas day dinner for the needy, homeless, elderly or lonely.

People can help by giving cash or a check to the Milford Elks.

Baskets will be packed on Friday, Dec. 18 and distributed the next day. Volunteers are welcome.

To donate or volunteer, call Amy Potts, 203-305-3124 or go to milfordelks.com.
