The 2014 Holiday Season


After months of preparation and shopping in 2014, Kinship4Kids delivered holiday season gifts to the Connecticut Department of Children and Families (DCF) in Norwich CT in December 18, 2014.  Below is a slide show with some pictures of that delivery day.

Bicycle staging and repair area.

This work space was donated by a local business. The normal avenue for sprucing up the bicycles donated by a local connecticut bicycle shop was not available this year. A volunteer (Linda's husband) spent many hours in this space renovating and restoring twenty-six bikes.
