State Representative Stephanie Cummings (R-74) will be raising money for local residents in need by collecting for the Salvation Army at the Reidville Drive Stop and Shop on December 18.
When: Monday, December 18, 2017 from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m.
Where: Stop and Shop – 410 Reidville Dr., Waterbury, CT
Rep. Cummings welcomes all constituents to stop by the store and help make the fundraising event a success! If you are unable to make it on December 18th you can text “CTREP” to 71777 to donate directly to the House and Senate Republicans’ Red Kettle. You can also visit the Salvation Army’s website at www.salvationarmyusa.org to learn of other ways to do good this holiday season; for example, by donating cars, clothing, household goods, airline miles, bonds and stocks, or volunteering for the community.
As a group, the Republican caucuses have raised more than $190,000 for the Salvation Army over the past several years. The Salvation Army responds to natural disasters such as wildfires and tornadoes, provides meals and toys to families in need, 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.
State Representative Stephanie Cummings (R-74) achieved a perfect one-hundred-percent voting record during the regular and special 2017 Legislative Sessions according to statistics compiled by the House Clerk’s Office.
This year, Rep. Cummings cast her vote on 417 separate pieces of legislation that made it to the floor of the House of Representatives. Perfect attendance is a very difficult thing to achieve, with only about 20% of legislators able to do so in any given year.
“The people of Waterbury’s East End and East Mountain put their trust in me to represent their interests at the capitol and I am proud to have achieved a perfect voting record on the House floor this session,” Rep. Cummings said. “I take my role as their voice very seriously and I work diligently to represent them to the best of my ability in the Waterbury community and in Hartford.”
State Representative Stephanie Cummings (R-74), in conjunction with Veterans Count Connecticut, Waterbury Veteran’s Memorial Committee, the AOH Veterans Committee and Stop and Shop Supermarkets, and with assistance from the Connecticut Military Department, hosted a successful “Stuff a Humvee” event to collect needed food and personal care items to assist local veterans in need.
Stop and Shop had collection boxes at all three Waterbury locations – Waterbury Plaza, 240 Chase Ave., Naugatuck Valley Shopping Center, 920 Wolcott St., and 410 Reidville Drive – from October 21 through November 16 and collected a large amount of food and personal care products. Together with generous donations from shoppers and others who came by just to donate, they were able to stuff a Humvee twice, and also fill a 12-foot long troop transport truck with generous donations.
Rep. Cummings would like to thank everyone who participated and is looking forward to the next drive!
