What we have been up to:
Serve!, Inc has had a very busy fall 2019. For Veteran’s Day we traveled to the Veteran of Foreign War facility located at 60 Stonington Road Mystic, CT. Serve!, Inc. members delivered Veterans Cards, handmade ‘thank you for your service’ cards made by area students, an American Flag and a gift to each veteran with our heartfelt thanks for their service.
On November 20, 2019, Serve!, Inc sent military humanitarian boxes to troops serving overseas. Our Thanksgiving packages for the troops of personal hygiene items are also filled with treats and happy wishes for a wonderful holiday.
We are preparing for our Serve Days which began November 26, 2019 with a gathering of the “Grandparents raising Grandchildren” organization. Serve!, Inc provides all the items for their Thanksgiving Dinner as well as hats, socks and gloves for the children’s warmth this winter.
Serve!, Inc went shopping for diapers, wipes and baby food to be donated to a local Lebanon nonprofit organization, Lebanon Children’s Clothing Wardrobe, servicing children in need. A local family fell into a hardship situation as a result of a devastating accident. Serve!, Inc. was happy to assist the family with Gift Certificates to local grocery stores and pharmacies in the area. Serve!, Inc made a donation of $200.00 to the New London Meal Center along with a large box of bagged treats.

Severe snow storms in the Northeast bring additional need for assistance. Serve!, Inc. has been very busy in 2014 packaging Federal Disaster packages to meet the increased demand for assistance. Earlier this year Serve!, Inc received a grant from the Groton, CT Walmart to assist us in the purchase of items for our federal disaster packages. This grant has made it possible for our organization to expand it's assistance to match the increase needs. Fifty percent of our packages go to neighborhood lockers in the New London and Washington Counties. The other fifty percent are on hand to meet storm and natural disaster demands such as fire, death, hurricane, tornado and floods within the United States.
