REALTORS® Have a Heart for Kids Gift Card Program
Litchfield County Board of REALTORS®, Inc.
The Public Relations Committee has kicked off their annual REALTORS® Have a Heart for Kids Program!
In 2006 the Public Relations Committee of Litchfield County Board of REALTORS® created the REALTORS® Have a Heart for Kids Gift Card Program for the purpose of assisting children in Connecticut’s foster care system by collecting monetary gift-cards for local retail shops such as Wal-Mart, Target, and Stop N’ Shop or they will accept cash or check contributions which are then converted to gift cards.
All gift cards are then donated to the Torrington office of the Department of Children and Families.
In 2019 we presented the Torrington DCF office with $3,438 in gift cards. DCF uses the gift cards to create various age appropriate placement packs, to have on hand for immediate use, consisting of clothing, health and beauty aid products, toys, personal items, etc. and a “few” goodies to comfort an abused/neglected child through the trauma of entering a strange, new environment.
We hope you can support their program and donate a gift card or monetary donation of at least $5.
