The Connection Magazines is humbled to get a very warm Thank You Note from “They Kept Us Safe, Let’s Keep Them Warm”.
We strive to always be connected to the community. Read Stacia McDonough’s warm note to us here:
Please accept my heartfelt thanks for promoting my 5th annual, “They Kept Us Safe, Let’s Keep Them Warm,” event benefiting our local, homeless veterans. Mission accomplished thanks to you, and your fabulous The Connection staff!
I’m thrilled to report that it was the biggest and best ever!
The hand-delivering of the gifts, the bounty of donated food (courtesy of Kings of Bedminster, and Delicious Heights of Bedminster, plus some homemade goodies from my amazing team of the world’s best volunteers), the Christmas music – all was Merry and and Bright.
You helped made Christmas brighter for our amazing veterans, and helped ensure they’re safe and warm this winter.
A Christmas miracle indeed!!!

Thank you kindly for your continuous support. Your incredible efforts are appreciated more than mere words could ever express. May the joy, and peace of Christmas live in your heart always. Here’s to a Happy and Healthy 2017! Thank you The Connection!
With warmest regards,
Stacia McDonough, Bedminster, NJ
