City sending out gifts to local service men and women

For many years, the city has remembered Shelton men and women who are away on active duty in the Armed Forces during the Christmas season by sending a small gift.

In order for a relative or friend to be included in this mailing, residents can write to the finance office at city hall and give the following information:  Service person’s name and rank, address with zip code, your name, address and phone number (in case there is a question).

The information should reach the Finance Office before Dec. 12 to ensure that the mailing reaches them in time for the holidays. The information can also be emailed to

Anyone wishing to share the spirit of the season with service men and women may do so by making a contribution to the service personnel of Shelton. Checks can be made payable to “The Servicemen’s Christmas Fund.” Donations can be sent to the finance office, City Hall, 54 Hill Street, Shelton, CT, 06484.

Thank you in advance for your contribution and may your own Christmas be happier because of your generous gift.
