Sun Visit Community Meal Center

In conjunction with WNBA Cares Week, the Connecticut Sun reached out to the community on May 23rd, serving dinner at the New London Community Meal Center. The food was donated by Mohegan Sun, and the catering staff was on hand to prepare it for the players, who fed roughly 200 visitors.

The entire team was on hand, including the coaching staff, to hand out a wide variety of food. People received turkey with stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy, assorted fruits and vegetables. The meal was topped off with various deserts, including pies and cookies. People were also provided with water and assorted sodas, all courtesy of Mohegan Sun.

The New London Community Meal Center provides meals for those in need, including dinner from 5-6 Monday through Friday. They have nearly 350 volunteers throughout the year, but Thursday night the Sun took over and made their presence felt as every player had a role along the food line.

The Sun also donated food that was collected at the preseason game against New York on May 11th and the home opener against New York on May 25th to the Meal Center.
