As always, financial gifts are appreciated. Please make your check out to New Canaan Food Pantry, 77 Main St., New Canaan, CT 06840. Food donations may be left at the New Canaan Food Pantry at St. Mark’s Church, 111 Oenoke Ridge Road. For more information, please call New Canaan Human Services 203-594-3076 if you need directions.
