Junior League of Greater New Haven to hold food drive

NEW HAVEN – The Junior League of Greater New Haven will hold a food drive from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.  Feb. 5, at the Amity Stop & Shop, located at 112 Amity Road.

The Junior League hopes to maximize donations by holding the drive the day before the Super Bowl, a busy day for the store, organizers said in a statement.
Last year’s Super Saturday drive collected 1,947 pounds of food and $337 in donations for the Connecticut Food Bank, the statement said.

The League has had a partnership with the food bank for several years.

Note: The Junior League of Greater New Haven, Inc. is a not-for-profit women's organization that provides leadership, volunteer training, and service opportunities to its members. The purpose of the Junior League is to provide volunteer training to its members through workshops, seminars, and hands-on experience in the development and implementation of the League's many projects, the statement said.
