Rep. Ben McGorty, 122nd District To Ring the Bell
On Wednesday, December 16th from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at Stop and Shop, 100 Quality Street in Trumbull, State Rep. Ben McGorty will be ringing the bell for the annual Salvation Army Red Kettle campaign.
“With many out of work and struggling financially this year, it is especially important to consider giving back in any way that you can. If you are able, consider donating to this worthy cause. Even a small donation can make a big difference in someone's life.” Said Rep. McGorty.
The Salvation Army responds to natural disasters, such as wildfires and tornadoes, provides meals and toys to families, and conducts research and analyses regarding human needs around the country. They also provide adult rehabilitation, veteran services, elderly services, missing person searches, housing assistance, youth recreation, sponsorship, and support in the fight to end human trafficking.
The organization has also been instrumental in the fight against COVID-19, working with local, state, and federal officials, as well as other organizations to help our most vulnerable populations.
