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!
