Tiny Tim’s Food Drive

Please join us for this year’s annual food drive benefiting Hands On Hartford! “Tiny Tim’s Holiday Food Drive” runs from November 17 through December 30. You may drop off non-perishable food donations at Hartford Stage. Our goal this year is to raise 2,000 pounds of food to help assist Hartford families in need. Hands On Hartford’s programs serve the city’s most vulnerable citizens: the homeless, children and families in crisis, and low-income senior citizens. The Community Pantry and Assistance and Advocacy Program provides groceries to over 400 households per month.
