Valley United Way and its Corporate Volunteer Council helped to alleviate hunger in the Valley by assembling the Harvest House on Shelton's River Walk. The House contained approximately 100,000 food items which have now been distributed to the area's food banks to help meet the needs of some of our most vulnerable citizens.

Hundreds of volunteers helped out Saturday to fill the shelves constructed by the students at O'Brien Tech in Ansonia with a bountiful supply of non-perishable food items. This year's Harvest House featured great activities for all such as a visit from some animal friends from the Beardsley Zoo, face painting, arts and crafts, a comedy magic show, touch a truck, moon bounce, hula hoops, karate, dance, fitness and acting performances, and live music. A "CAN"tastic Construction Competition was held where teams constructed structures built out of non-perishable food items. The Girl Scouts, Liquid Lunch and the Shelton/Valley Volunteer Fire Dept. and Ambulance Corps served a Hot Diggity Dog and Harvest Soup Supper as well as a Pancake Breakfast.

We'll have a full wrap-up with more pictures and lots of thanks later this week.
