Al May (Costa Rica 70-72) – $1,000 was awarded November, 2009

For more than 30 years, with the help of the Connecticut Food Bank, businesses, churches, schools, individuals and civic groups like CTRPCV, CCA has been able to provide turkeys and all the fixings needed for a home-cooked holiday meal to about 1,500 New Haven low-income families, seniors and persons with disabilities annually. All the food is sorted and put in bags for distribution to the families and individuals thereby enabling them to have a healthy Thanksgiving dinner.
