In partnership with an anonymous sponsor, the Middletown area center held a Christmas Wonderland on Dec. 19 at the Robert “Sonny” Hill Jr. Community Center. Typically, Christmas Wonderland features a dinner with festive decorations, games, and treats for underserved families. Though the pandemic ruled out such festivities, the sponsor still generously donated gifts to Middletown families in need. With assistance from the Middletown Community Building-Institute, presents and gift cards for 22 families in need were delivered via a drive-through drop-off at the community center.
