Take a turn on the ice and help the hungry

NEW HAVEN - The Elm City Skating Club will sponsor a “Free Skate Food Drive” at the Ralph Walker Ice Rink from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. Nov. 21 1080 State St.

The event will benefit families in the New Haven area.

Everyone is invited to come help fill the locker rooms with food for neighbors in need, organizers said in a statement.

Members of the Elm City Skating Club will be on hand to collect donations and give ice skating tips and demonstrations throughout the event, the statement said. Participants are asked to bring non-perishable food items valued at $5, or a monetary donation, and in return they will skate free during a special public session.

Donations will be collected the day of the event and all proceeds will be donated to soup kitchens in the New Haven area.

The Elm City Skating Club is locally known for its Learn-to-Skate, Little Elm Skating Club tots program, CardioSkate and Learn-to-Play-Hockey programs, the statement said.

The rink is owned by the city of New Haven and operated by Rink Management Solutions as one of several sports complexes located throughout the city serving New Haven families.

Space is limited on the ice and rental skates are subject to availability.
