New London – The Connecticut Sun returned to the New London Community Meal Center Monday, continuing an annual tradition as part of the WNBA Cares initiative.
All of the players and coaching staff were on hand to serve food donated by Mohegan Sun. The meal included turkey, stuffing, mashed sweet potatoes, vegetables, salad, desserts and coffee. The Connecticut Sun front office staff was also on hand for this event.
The New London Community Meal Center was established in 1985 in the New London, Conn., area. It was created to respond to the needs of New London’s most vulnerable residents by providing nutritious meals in a kind, hospitable and clean environment.
The organization currently provides lunch five days a week and dinner six days a week, including Saturday dinner served by a downtown New London church.
