Posted on May 1, 2019 by admin


SHELTON – State Representatives Jason Perillo and Ben McGorty dropped off sports equipment collected from Shelton residents during a month-long  Sports Equipment Drive to the  Boys & Girls Club of the Lower Naugatuck Valley on Friday.

“I want to thank the community for helping us collect sports equipment for Boys & Girls Club of the Lower Naugatuck Valley,” said Rep. Perillo. “The new and used sports equipment will help youth athletes participate or learn a new sport and keep them active after school and through the summer.”

Rep. McGorty added, “The affordability of sports equipment has become costly and no child in our community should be left out of participating in a sport because they can’t afford the equipment. I am glad that Shelton residents always step up to help children in our community and to help provide them with the necessary resources to have a successful life.”

Residents can drop-off sports equipment at the Boys & Girls Club of the Lower Naugatuck Valley throughout the year.
