TVCCA’s Retired & Senior Volunteer Program Partners with Charter Oak Federal Credit
Union and Hall Communications for Annual Winter Boot Drive
New London, CT (November 12, 2019) – Thames Valley Council for Community Action and
the RSVP Volunteers have some new partners in their annual collection and distribution of
winter boots for children in need!
From November 18 through December 13, folks can go to one of a dozen Charter Oak
Federal Credit Union branches to drop off donations of new boots or cash to provide warm
winter boots for children in our community. Hall Communications will be broadcasting live
across its six stations (WCTY, WNLC, K-HITS, WICH AM, I98 WILI FM and WILI AM/FM) from
several of the branches throughout the drive.
Donations of new, unwrapped boots can be dropped off at the following Charter Oak
Federal Credit Union branches:
1055 Hartford Tpke, Waterford
3 Boston Post Rd, Waterford
32 Chicago Ave, Groton
625 Long Hill Rd, Groton
601 Rte 32, Montville
1 Connecticut Ave, Norwich
4 Hendel Dr, Mystic
335 Main St, Niantic
20 Liberty St, Pawcatuck
7 Providence Pike, Putnam
893 Main St, Willimantic
589 Hartford Pike, Dayville
The project has been one of RSVP’s signature programs for 24 years, providing new winter boots to children of
low income families living throughout New London and Windham Counties. Each year, the requests for boots
increases and this year we hope to fill over 1,500 requests. The boots are purchased by community members or
with funds donated. Many of the boot donors and volunteers return each year to feed their holiday spirit.
Volunteers come from all walks of life. Some donate an hour or two and others spend many hours working on this
project over the next two months.
