Some Stop & Shop stores collecting food for U.S. Coast Guard members


Even though the shutdown is over, at least for now, the need is still great for members of the U.S. Coast Guard.

They continued to work during the shutdown but did not get paid.

Some local Stop & Shop stores are collecting non-perishable canned and boxed food items for them.

If you’d like to donate, you can head over to the Stop & Shop stores in Hamden, Windsor or Manchester.

A big donation box has been set up at each of those locations.
