    The Sikh Congregation, located on West Street, presented a collection of food items to Southington Bread for Life in early December. A minivan was packed to the ceiling with the donated items when it made the delivery to Bread for Life.

    "Once again your donation of food is so greatly appreciated at this time of year. You are making a difference in feeding the hungry right here in Southington. There are those who have less and depend on us to give them any support that we can," said Eldon Hafford, executive director of Bread for Life.

    "As our mission is to provide food, fellowship and a sense of dignity to those in need, you make it all possible. Without your support we could not do all that we do," he told the group of Sikhs when they made the recent delivery. Hafford said the Sikhs from the Southington Gurdwara Guru Nanak Darbar have made numerous donations in the past, all which were greatly appreciated.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
