UPDATE: We collected $303 for local Red Cross recovery efforts at our visit to the Orange Ale House and at the November bout!
In addition to Storm Sandy donations, at the bout we also collected:
- cards to send to 30 soldiers and veterans through the American Red Cross Holiday Mail for Heroes program
- 22 coats, plus some other winter wear, for Backyard Humanitarian to assist individuals in need in Stamford
- and several bags of food and supplies for the Meriden Humane Society.
Thank you all for being such generous fans and friends!
Superstorm Sandy has had an impact on all of our lives and communities. Most of us have been very fortunate to endure the storm in safety with relatively minor inconveniences and minimal impact. However, many in our lives and our communities, and our surrounding region, will be recovering from the devastation for months and years to come. Our hearts go out to all who have suffered losses.
Please consider making a donation to recovery and relief efforts.
