Food drive raises $6,000 for Valley homeless shelter

A weekend food drive to help restock the shelves at the Valley’s homeless shelter, the Spooner House, was a sweet success.
Thanks to the generosity of Valley residents, along with donations from Stop & Shop stores in Ansonia, Seymour and Shelton, more than 70 cart loads of food and $6,000 poured in for “The Valley Has a Heart.” The cash was twice what organizers hoped for.
In addition, Liquid Lunch in Shelton held “In Love & Chocolate,” which drew more than 250 people who feasted on sweet and savory creations, courtesy of 11 local vendors. That event raised more than $4,600 to benefit the Spooner House and The Turtle Shell Fund.
