An annual program coordinated by several local nonprofit organizations is looking to help even more families this year because of the pandemic.
“The idea is really to try to help these families that are struggling to have a good Christmas,” said Maria Campos-Harlow, executive director of United Way of Meriden and Wallingford. “It should be a very happy time of the year for a lot. But for many it’s really very stressful.”
