SOUTHBURY – State Representatives David Labriola (R-131) and Arthur O’Neill (R-69), and State Senator Eric Berthel (R-32), volunteered on Monday to raise money for local residents in need by spending an hour ringing the bell for the Salvation Army outside Stop and Shop in Southbury.
If you were unable to donate to Rep. Labriola’s kettle at Stop and Shop, you can still 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.
Republican lawmakers have already raised nearly $40,000 for the Salvation Army this year. 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.
