Staying Put in New Canaan in the days before Valentine’s Day mailed hundreds of heartfelt valentines to members, thanks to a friend of the organization who graciously donated envelopes and postage.

Thank you for supporting Staying Put in New Canaan and allowing us to provide important services to New Canaan seniors, their loved ones, and the entire community!
We would like to extend our most sincere thanks to our gracious hostess, Lila Coleman, our generous sponsors, and our dedicated volunteers.
