TRUMBULL – The ‘Stuff a Humvee’ event co-hosted by State Representative David Rutigliano (R-123) in conjunction with Trumbull Stop & Shop and Homes For The Brave to collect items to benefit local veterans in need was overwhelmingly successful in November of 2019.
“I am grateful to everyone who donated at our ‘Stuff a Humvee’ collection. Trumbull residents are very generous and caring community, and I believe that together we can ensure that no veteran goes to bed hungry,” said Rep. Rutigliano.
During the three hour drive, Rutigliano collected not just one but two Humvees full of non-perishable food items and toiletries that will be donated to local veterans in need.
Homes for the Brave has provided housing, vocational training, and life skills coaching to help individuals out of homelessness since 2002. To date, they have worked with nearly 1,200 men and women, most of whom are veterans.
In 2011, Homes for the Brave opened Female Soldiers: Forgotten Heroes, Connecticut’s first and only community-based transitional home exclusively for homeless female Veterans and their young children.
