5/21/2018 - Fill a Public Works Truck Food Drive May 21-May 26

The Ansonia Public Works Department is joining hundreds of Public Works Departments from across New England to collect food and household goods to support our local community food bank needs. Our Fill-A-Public Works Truck Food Drive will be occurring during National Public Works Week, from May 21-26, 2018 and will support the Kathleen C.B. Samela Memorial Food Pantry.  Help us help our neighbors and friends. Our collection will take place at Public Works during the week of May 21st through May 26th, located at 1 North Division Street, Ansonia, CT, during normal working day hours.  (Monday – Friday 7:00 a.m. – 2:45 p.m. and Saturday, 8:00 a.m. to 11:45 p.m.)  Drop off will be at the transfer station building near the scale.

On behalf of Ansonia Public Works, we thank you in advance for your support of this critical community need. Further questions on how you can help may be directed to Darlene Zawisza at 203-736-6000 or email [email protected].
