WATERFORD – State Representative Kathleen McCarty (R-38) has volunteered for the third year in a row to raise money for local residents in need by collecting for the Salvation Army at Walmart on December 9th. All proceeds collected during the one hour of bell ringing will be donated directly to the Salvation Army.
Last year Rep. McCarty’s collection – raised together with Senator Paul Formica – contributed to the more than $186,000 that the House Republican Caucus has raised as a whole for the Salvation Army – with the help of Walmart – over the past several years.
Rep. McCarty 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 9th, 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.
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.
For more information on the event, please contact Rep. McCarty at 800-842-1423 or Kathleen.McCarty@housegop.ct.gov.
