Christmas spirit seems to get lost in the hustle and bustle of shopping malls and grocery stores. The real spirit of the holiday season is revealed in helping those in need. Willington Nameplate will not be sending out Christmas baskets or flowers this year to their customers. Instead we will be sending generous donations and supplying printing services to local charities in Connecticut. One of those groups is the Marine Corps League. Willington Nameplate designed and donated double laminated foam core educational boards for this league. These boards help spread the word about supporting our honorable soldiers with the wounded warrior program and scholarships for Marine and Navy Corpsmen families.

Willington Nameplate will also be donating to The Greg Caron Family Fund. This fund was established to assist and aid Greg Caron, a local Marine who suffered severe wounds in Afghanistan while serving his second tour. You can read more of Greg’s story here.
Other gestures of kindness this holiday season are Willington’s donations to The Salvation Army and the Crystal Lake Food Pantry. Donations made to these local organizations will supply clothing and toys for needy families, and warm meals for the hungry and homebound so everyone can enjoy a Merry Christmas.
The Christmas Spirit is alive and well at Willington Nameplate. Cheers to you and your family this holiday season…MERRY CHRISTMAS!!
