Voter registration

NEW HAVEN — The Community Soup Kitchen will team up with the National Council of Jewish Women to conduct voter registration at the soup kitchen on Sept. 11.
Marylyn Rittner and Bernice Gillman, co-chairwomen of the local chapter of National Council of Jewish Women, will lead the effort.
David O’Sullivan, coordinator of the soup kitchen at 84 Broadway, said voter registration may be the best way to commemorate the lives of the victims of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on New York and Washington, D.C.
"Encouraging every American’s participation in our elections will show the world that our democracy is strong and that everyone’s vote is important," O’Sullivan said.
In 2007, the soup kitchen provided 59,335 breakfast and lunch meals to the homeless. sick and working poor in the city. It offers lunch four days a week at the Broadway site and provides food for breakfast at four ancillary sites and lunch at St. Luke’s lunch program for women and children.
