Thank you for your donations for gloves, hats and socks! We distributed 108 warm gloves, 120 hats and 250 socks at the shelter serve yesterday (on December 7, 2013). Thank you for all your support. It is TRULY appreciated.
Thank you also to all the cooks and servers who volunteered a large chunk of their weekend to serve the community.
Mercy shelter staff commented on how many ask them about when Muslim Coalition of Connecticut is coming to serve again because "their food is SO good!" - Thank you also for your continuous support in this venture and for making a difference to those in need.
