DANBURY, CONN. – The Western Connecticut State University football team will collect nonperishable food and personal care items for donation to the Women's Center of Greater Danbury at their Saturday, Oct. 1 home game against Bridgewater State.
“We are so grateful to Colonials Coach Joe Loth and the football team for holding this food drive on behalf of our clients,” Women’s Center President and CEO Patricia Zachman said. “These items will be provided to the women and children who reside at Elizabeth House, our domestic and sexual violence emergency shelter. On behalf of them, and everyone here at the Women’s Center, I extend my heartfelt thanks to all who so generously participate in this event.”
Collections will be made upon entry to the Westside Athletic Complex stadium, located on the Westside campus at 43 Lake Ave. Extension in Danbury.
“We’re excited to work with the center on such a great cause,” said Western Connecticut State University Football Coach Joe Loth.
