Card Writing Campaign Aims to Brighten the Holidays for Witherell Residents

Since visitor restrictions are in place to help protect the residents at Nathaniel Witherell from COVID-19, The Greenwich Commission on Aging is asking the people who live in Greenwich to help make the holidays merry by sending personally signed Christmas/Holiday cards with a note of cheer. Ask family and friends to do the same.

Also, please consider contributing a $5.00 check (or more) with the note “XMAS GIFT” made payable to “Friends of Nathaniel Witherell” so appropriate religious or practical gifts can be provided to each resident.

Please send your cards to:

Chaplaincy Card Drive
Nathaniel Witherell
70 Parsonage Road
Greenwich CT 06830

Please do not send food, candy, baked goods, flowers without containers, or beverages.
