Seymour, CT- On Tuesday July, 19 Connecticut Basement Systems participated in an event to raise money for the Valley United Way. The event was held at the local Seymour restaurant, Hot Tamale, to benefit the Harvest House. The restaurant donated 15% of their customers’ bill to provide food to those in need.
Harvest House is an effort that biannually builds a 400 square foot house with the aim to fill it with more than 100,000 items of food. The house is funded by volunteers and designed by students from the Emmett O’Brian Technical School. The food items, both perishable and nonperishable, are collected by community members. This food then fills the house to be distributed throughout the Valley-based food banks and agencies to serve those in need.
One of the returning participants in the fundraising event this year is Connecticut Basement Systems. This company has been known to take part in the event every year as it looks to improve the surrounding communities. By eating dinner for themselves they also provided a meal to those in need.
The donations collected will go to benefit Harvest House IV which will be assembled on Shelton’s River Walk with a final food drive and celebration on September 24. For more information on how to get involved please visit the Valley United Way.
