Wilton Food Pantry: The food pantry continues to accept donations for Wilton residents in need. Donations of non-perishable, non-expired food items may be dropped off at the tent on right side of Comstock Community Center at 180 School Road, Wilton on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays or at the shed in front of the Wilton Police Department at 238 Danbury Road, Wilton on any other day. Donations may be dropped off at anytime at your convenience. While the tent and shed are covered, they are outside, unheated structures and as such residents are asked to keep this in mind when selecting their items for donation.
Food Donations for Police, Fire and other first responder employees: We are not asking for food donations for emergency responders, however, many residents have asked how to make donations. We suggest gift cards to local restaurants or markets which will allow them to purchase food/meals. Gift cards can be left at Town Hall, Monday, Tuesday or Thursday between 8:30 and 10:30am, in the drop box in the vestibule at the back of the building. Gift cards should be put in an envelope addressed to Sarah Gioffre, Community Affairs Coordinator. We are not able to accept home cooked meals, baked goods, or catered food at this time.
How to Volunteer: Wilton Helping Hands is a volunteer network organized to address the needs of Wilton’s most vulnerable population. Volunteers assist at a social distance with doorstep drop off of basic necessities or by making daily calls or sending emails. To volunteer, please call (203) 451-8479. There are also other groups organizing to assist those in need; please check local social media for more information. If you or someone you know is in need of help, please contact Director of Social Services Sarah Heath at email@example.com.
Face Coverings for Wilton Seniors and the Disabled: Social Services Director Sarah Heath is asking residents to assist Wilton’s seniors by dropping off homemade cloth masks in the shed in front of Wilton Police Department at 238 Danbury Road, Wilton. Social Services and Wilton Helping hands will distribute masks to Wilton seniors and disabled residents.
Explore Wilton's Walking Trails. With Town fields and recreational facilities closed and the NRVT often overcrowded, we are encouraging residents to discover other ways to be in the fresh air in a healthy, socially responsible way. Explore the Town's many nature trails on the Conservation Commission's webpage. There are also more than three miles of under-utilized sidewalks along Route 7 running from Wolfpit Road to Olmstead Hill Road, with plenty of empty parking lots along the way. Walking in Wilton Center also includes the option of the trail on Schenck's Island. School Road, Kristine Lilly Way and Wilton's many cul-de-sacs or less traveled residential streets are also good choices. To encourage residents to choose less traveled public access trails in our natural open spaces, we are announcing the Explore Wilton Walking Trails Program.
Shop Local, Win Local. Beginning June 1st, your support of Wilton retailers can make you an even bigger community winner. The Town of Wilton is launching Shop Local, Win Local over the next 4 weeks.
