Happy Holidays from the Connecticut Democratic Party!

The Connecticut Democratic Party wishes you and your loved ones a very happy holiday season.

We – along with dozens of volunteers – just completed our Week of Action. Our office was filled with dedicated Democrats, working hard to make blankets for refugees, many of whom recently came to Connecticut after escaping unimaginable atrocities. We hope these handmade blankets make them feel more at home in our state.

Volunteers assemble blankets for refugee families.

In addition to making blankets for refugees, Democrats collected and assembled toiletry kits for our homeless neighbors. Today Connecticut Democratic Party staff dropped the kits off at the South Park Inn in Hartford.

From all of us at the Connecticut Democratic Party, happy holidays!
