On Saturday, December 9 from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. State Representative Rosa Rebimbas (R-70) will be volunteering to raise money for local residents in need by collecting for the Salvation Army’s annual Red Kettle campaign at the Walmart on 1100 New Haven Road in Naugatuck.
Funds donated will help the Salvation Army provide basic social services to those in need of food, shelter, clothing, and financial assistance. Walmart will be matching donations raised statewide by Connecticut House Republicans up to $25,000.
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.
If you plan to be in the area during this time, please consider donating to the Salvation Army. Every little bit counts and will help make the holidays a little brighter for our neighbors.
Those unable to attend on Saturday can text “CTREP” to 71777 to donate directly to the House and Senate Republicans’ Red Kettle.
