Connecticut Retirement Community Holds Holiday Toy Drive

The annual holiday toy drive benefiting the Southbury Needy Fund was a great success for The Watermark at East Hill Connecticut Retirement Community.

New and unwrapped toys for children in the community were generously donated. Tax deductible monetary donations were also accepted to acquire college books for students faced with the high cost of text books.

Michelle Bettigole, Executive Director of the Connecticut Retirement Community told that she was delighted to have its residents, guests and associates contribute to this holiday toy drive. “All of us at The Watermark at East Hill would like to extend a big thanks to those who participate in the toy drive, helping to make the holidays special for those in need.”

The Southbury Needy Fund is a year-round support fund for families in need. One hundred percent of donations support local families.

The Watermark at East Hill offers a full spectrum of care: assisted living, nursing care, Alzheimer care - in one retirement community. Also, it houses Watermark University, a senior learning institute with a variety of innovative brain and body fitness courses - computer, cooking, art, music, literature, Yoga, Tai Chi and more.
