— Sun to Host Maternal Health Fair on June 9 —
Uncasville, CT (May 25, 2023) – Today, the Connecticut Sun announced that the organization will be hosting its 2023 Maternal Health Supply Drive.
The Connecticut Sun is dedicated to giving back to its local communities and providing resources to those in need. The Sun believe that maternal health is a leading issue, and as such, it is important to provide access to supplies that will help expecting and current mothers. Building off of the momentum of last year’s drive where the Sun collected 700 donation items and raised $2000 that directly benefitted The Diaper Bank of Connecticut; the Sun are encouraging fans to bring supplies for mothers and young children (listed below).
The 2023 Maternal Health Supply Drive will be ongoing through four Connecticut Sun home games: May 30 vs. the Indiana Fever, June 4 vs. the Dallas Wings, and June 6 and June 8 vs. the Las Vegas Aces. Collection bins will be at the Earth and Sky Entrances of Mohegan Sun Arena on the Concourse. All donated supplies will be distributed at the Connecticut Sun’s Maternal Health Fair on June 9. Any leftover donations will be given to local Norwich/New London communities.
“We’re excited to bring back our maternal health drive and to host our first maternal health fair! Motherhood can be difficult to navigate, and because of that, we want to do our part to help mothers and expecting mothers access the supplies, support, and information that they need.” – Morgan Tuck, Connecticut Sun Director of Franchise Development and Assistant General Manager
