Published 7:30 pm, Thursday, December 2, 2010
The Y's Women of Westport hosts a "Festive Holiday Tea" on Dec. 13, but they aren't forgetting those less fortunate.
Amid the good food, good friends and music, the group will be collecting donations for those in need, with the items to be distributed at a later date by Interfaith Housing and the Domestic Violence Crisis Center in Norwalk.
Y's Women members are asked to bring new gifts. Suggested items include: twin-size sheets, pillow cases, bath towels, washcloths, pillows and blankets; toilet articles for men, women and children (no samples); gloves, caps, scarves, sweaters, women's underwear (large), pajamas, night gowns, robes, slippers and children's underwear; pre-paid phone cards; gift cards for local stores, such as Stop & Shop, Stew Leonard's, Kohl's, Bob's, TJMaxx, Marshalls (place cards in envelope with amount written on outside).
Toys are not needed; they are contributed by other groups. Wrap gifts in clear plastic bags with size and gender marked where appropriate.
