Cooking made easy with Watson at Columbus House

Friday, May 18th, 2018 the lovely Volunteer Coordinator from Columbus House, Sheree DiMario, visited Watson to pick up a trunk load of appliances for clients. The everyday essentials provided by Watson included Toastmaster Appliances in the form of;

  • 1.5 Quart Slow Cookers
  • Personal Blenders
  • Electric Can Openers
  • 2 Slice Toasters
  • 5 Cup Coffee Makers


New Counter Spaces Need New Cooking Gadgets!

With future additional living spaces coming together at the historic 1920’s nurses quarters, formerly the Mary Shepherd Homethat sits on the Connecticut Valley Hospital Campus, there will be a much larger need for necessary living tools! Columbus House just cut the groundbreaking ribbon at the corner of Bow Lane and Eastern Drive and will be developing the building into 32 units of permanent supportive housing with a preference for Veterans experiencing homelessness. This new site, in addition to their New Haven, Wallingford and Middletown locations, outlines the need for more help at Columbus House. We realize that adjusting to a new life of independence can be hard. Having items that make the daily necessities easier to manage could only make this transition a tad more manageable. Wake up, Open it, toast it, blend it and cook it for later; all a secondary thought as one masters their new day with these kitchen goodies!

Watson hopes that everyone gets settled in and can achieve greatness without the worry of getting a living space together! If you would like to help or volunteer at Columbus House, please visit Columbus Housefor more info.
