On Oct. 23rd Sen. Art Linares came to Grace Episcopal Church to present a $5,155 check to The Shoreline Soup Kitchens & Pantries. On October 12, Sen. Linares ran in the Hartford Half Marathon to raise money for SSKP.

“After escaping from communist Cuba, my family had to rely temporarily on community soup kitchens to make ends meet,” Sen. Linares said.  “Those soup kitchens helped to get my family through a difficult period in their lives. I was brought up recognizing the value that our soup kitchens and pantries provide to people in need. That’s why I want to do what I can to help fight hunger in our region.  Thanks to so many people in our community, we are doing just that.  Their support and generosity helped me every step of the way during the race.”

“We very much appreciate Sen. Linares’ efforts,” SSKP Executive Director Patty Dowling said.  “These funds will go a long way toward helping vulnerable families in the towns we serve.”

“This holiday season and throughout the year, please consider donating either money or time to help The Shoreline Soup Kitchens & Pantries,” Sen. Linares said.  “No one should go hungry. Together, we can stem this growing crisis.”
