Hartford, CT - In response to a recent visit from Governor Ned Lamont, and with the federal government shutdown approaching the five-week mark, Chrysalis Center has announced it will be offering free food to any furloughed employee living in Connecticut.
Beginning on Thursday, January 24, furloughed federal employees in need of immediate assistance may call Chrysalis Center. The organization will be donating food to help ease some of the financial stressors which may exist due to the shutdown.
“Chrysalis Center has a responsibility to help our neighbors in need. To help make this difficult time a little easier, we want to do our part in giving back to those who have been affected by the U.S. Government shutdown. We know firsthand what it means to struggle to pay living expenses and have basic necessities, such as food, readily available for you and your family, as many of our clients struggle everyday with this,” said Sharon L. Castelli, CEO of Chrysalis Center.
Those in need of food are asked to contact Chrysalis Center directly at (860) 263-4419 to coordinate a pickup time. Individuals need only bring their government ID or proof of employment with them. This initiative is being privately funded by Chrysalis Center. If you would like to donate to this cause, please contact the organization.
