Support Local Toy Drives This Holiday Season

As we approach the holidays, I hope you will join me in donating a new, unwrapped toy for a needy child to receive.

Connecticut is a land of plenty, with one of the best qualities of life and highest household incomes in the nation. But we are also a state with one of the worst income inequalities in America (the gap between the richest and the poorest.)
