Blue and Gold Groceries

A substantial number of The Gilbert School students and their families are currently facing food insecurity and crisis because of the ongoing pandemic. 

In response to this, Gilbert Alumni have organized "Blue and Gold Groceries" - a program designed to help Gilbert students and families have access to food and food sources.

There are three ways you can help:
1.) Financially contributing to this campaign (all funds are sent directly to Gilbert)
2.) Donating non-perishable food items to be distributed by Gilbert (donations can be dropped off at the donation bin outside of the main entrance to Gilbert or at the Open Door Soup Kitchen, 160 Main St, Winsted)
3.) Help spread the word by sharing this link and contacting fellow alumni 

We understand that these are difficult times for everyone, and we very much appreciate any contribution you are willing and able to provide.

If you prefer to mail in a donation directly to the school, please send it to:

Blue and Gold Groceries
Attn: Sue Sojkas 
c/o The Gilbert School
200 Williams Avenue
Winsted, CT 06098

Checks can be made out to “The Gilbert School”

Our singular goal is to provide relief to as many Gilbert families as possible.

Thank you for your support, and GO GILBERT!!
