Southington Bread for Life Executive Director Eldon Hafford, center, accepts a donation from Jerry Cerasoli, left, and Bob Lopena, right, members of Mickey Blake’s Cigar Club located on Spring Street. The gift was the result of donations made at the members’ holiday party.

“We have a great membership, about 200 members, and they really responded well,” Lopena said, adding that two members, Debbie Alos and Denise Coco were instrumental in organizing the collection of donations and boxes of food.

“We would like to thank the club members who so generously thought of helping others. Without them and all those who support us, Bread for Life could never provide all the programs that serve Southington’s neediest residents,” Hafford said. For more information,
