Holiday Basket Program

The community brought holiday cheer to 226 Suffield residents. SCA extends sincere thanks to the many individuals, families, organizations, churches, businesses and Town departments that helped to make the 2019 Holiday Basket Program such a great success. Eighty-six Suffield households, comprising  226 men, women and children, had a more enjoyable holiday season because of the generosity of others!

Salvation ArmyKettle Drive

A total of $2,403 was raised this past December. Ninety-percent of the money raised locally is retained for Suffield residents in need. We extend a big thanks to Suffield Rotary, SHS Interact Club, Suffield Academy and the many individual and family “ringers” who helped make this campaign such a success!
