Happy Holidays from All of Us at CLANCY!
There’s a certain magic in the air as the weather turns chilly and holiday decorations come out of storage rooms across the country. The warmth of candlelight, fireplaces and ovens baking treats fills many homes. Bright colorful lights dancing in windows and Christmas songs play on radios serve as reminders in case you could forget.
From all of us at CLANCY to you and yours at home, we wish you the best of Holiday gatherings and a happy, prosperous New Year!
Join Us in Celebrating the Season of Giving
It’s a special time of year where gifts may be exchanged among family and friends. As the Grinch learned by the end of the popular children’s tale, giving feels good and often better than receiving.
Here are a few of the Holiday programs we participate with annually in which you can join us:
Food for Friends
If you were over by local NY and CT Stop and Shop stores in November, you might have seen one of our trucks being loaded with donated food headed to The Hillside Food Outreach and Putnam C.A.P. We’re glad we could lend the hand with KICKS 105.5 and truck to help those within our community have a happier, healthier Thanksgiving.
The Pajama Program
Thanks to the generosity of the team here, 14 children in foster care will be receiving new pajamas and new books to curl up in bed with. There were cash donations collected as well as a few new pajama sets and new books. This small collection in our main office wraps up a much larger project where our Newtown, CT warehouse was used to prepare pallets of books and hundreds of pajamas for delivery to various local foster homes. You can read more about our commitment to the Pajama Program here: Help Us Deliver Good Nights!
Gifts for Kids
For the past two years, we have donated a truck and crew to help out with Healthy Families NY’s awesome holiday program. This year makes our third year. Last year, 150+ kids received gifts for the holidays and we’re happy to deliver even more this year (164)! Participating sponsors are assigned a child in need and provided with their ages, sizes and gift ideas. The goal is to make sure there aren’t any sad children on Christmas morning and that the at least have one present to open. It’s a really fun purchasing gifts for kids knowing the joy it will bring to them. Parents of young children may find it a great way to help teach them about the holiday spirit of giving.

Toys for Tots
This year, with so many participating in “Gifts for Kids” our Go Minis Portable Storage division chose to help our by donating containers to serve as drop-off locations for local community toy drives. The 5 portable storage containers have been delivered to various locations in Putnam County and Westchester County. Please visit Toys for Tot’s website for more information on how you can help donate or by hosting a toy drive in your area: http://toysfortots.org
