Washington, CT - The Devereux Glenholme School delivered holiday cheer to two local families through their Second Annual Adopt-A-Family program. Devereux Glenholme sponsored a family from The Women’s Center of Greater Danbury for the second consecutive year along with a New Milord family of three, their first direct school-to-family sponsorship. Through the connections of friends, Holly Slupatchuk received an abundance of gifts to adorn the space beneath her tree this holiday season, the same for the Women’s Center family.

The Adopt-A-Family success is a direct result of the caring Devereux Glenholme community; the school’s staff, faculty and students pulled together for this single gift-giving purpose. The students of Section 2 ran a campus-wide sale of baked goods and hand-made ornaments while the faculty organized a special auction. Combined these two groups raised over $700 toward the gifts for our special families, which supplemented the spectacular gift giving efforts of the entire school.

The Devereux Glenholme School will continue to warm the hearts of special families each holiday season with their Adopt-a-Family program; reaching out annually to The Women’s Center of Greater Danbury and others who are in need of extra holiday cheer.
