SHELTON — The city is once again planning to show local men and women who are away on active duty in the armed forces during the coming Christmas season.

The city annually sends a small gift to these service men and women. Anyone wishing to participate can make a contribution. Those contributing are asked to make checks payable to “The Servicemen’s Christmas Fund” and send to the Finance Office, Shelton City Hall, 54 Hill St., Shelton, CT 06484.

In order for your relative or friend to be included in this mailing, you should 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 must be send it by Dec. 13 to ensure that the mailing reaches them during the holiday season. The information can also be emailed to w.gally@cityofshelton.org.
