NEW HAVEN, CT -- Tile America recently launched an initiative to donate meals to homeless shelters in each of the towns in which they have a showroom during the COVID-19 crisis. With seven locations throughout Connecticut, they are estimated to donate over 200 meals. By working with local United Ways and various organizations, one homeless shelter will receive meals each week. The meals will be purchased from a local restaurant within the town in an effort to support these small businesses, which are struggling.
The first meal went to the Homeless Hospitality Center in New London. Twenty individually packaged complete meals were purchased from the NV Bakery and delivered to the shelter. The second donation of 30 bagged lunches will support Operation Hope in Fairfield. The meals will be purchased from local restaurant, The Pine Creek Deli of Fairfield, CT.
