Submitted by Genie Dethloff.

(Dec. 8, 2020) — Each year around the holidays, the Killingworth Women’s Organization works hard to make sure that every Killingworth child has a happy holiday – starting with the Letters to Santa program and ending with the Holiday Children’s Wish Drive.

To meet the wishes of the children, donations of gifts will be collected from the community and distributed to families. This free, confidential program is available to all families who need it, particularly this year when so many are so hard hit due to the coronavirus.

To Request Gifts:

Provide the Child’s First Name, Gender, Age & Birthday (month and day), Favorite Color, Favorite Snack, Clothing Size, Shoe Size, and Interests (i.e. soccer, video games, hiking, etc.), for each child in your household and email to or call 203-984-3518.

To Provide Gifts:

To access the wish list signup, email or call 203-984-3518.

Anyone who wishes to donate to The Children’s Wish Drive can donate online at or send a check to KWO, PO Box 952, Killingworth, CT 06419 (please indicate Wish Drive on the check). Starting In 2021, KWO will be expanding the wish program beyond a holiday gift drive to year-round wishes for children in need.
