Shelton seeks local armed services members to thank during holidays

For many years the city of Shelton has remembered Shelton men and women who are away on active duty in the U.S. armed forces during the Christmas season. The city sends a small gift to these service men and women.

In order for your relative or friend to be included in this mailing, you should write to the Finance Office at Shelton City Hall and give the following information: Service person’s name and rank; address with zip code; and your name, address and phone number (in case there is a question).

The information should reach the Finance Office before Dec. 24 to ensure the gift reaches them during the holiday season. The information also can be emailed to

Contributions accepted

Anyone wishing to share with them the happy thoughts of the holiday season may do so by making a contribution to the service personnel of Shelton and the spirit of Christmas. Make checks payable to “The Servicemen’s Christmas Fund.”

Requests and contributions should be mailed to the Finance Office, City Hall, 54 Hill St., Shelton, CT 06484.

“Thank you in advance for your contribution and may your own Christmas be happier because of your generous gift,” city officials said.
