Goodspeed's Annual Food Drive Kicks Off With BOGO Deal for Both Theaters
On Monday, November 20, Goodspeed Musicals kicks-off their Annual Food Drive to benefit the East Haddam Food Bank. Goodspeed will be collecting donations during Thanksgiving week in the hopes that they will have another record-breaking year for participation. The need is even greater this year as the number of households served by the East Haddam Food Bank has grown once again to record levels.
Goodspeed Musicals is offering a special buy one ticket, get one free to patrons who bring a generous donation of non-perishable foods to the November 20th 2:00 matinee or the 7:30 p.m. performance of RAGS at the Goodspeed Opera House in East Haddam OR the 7:30 p.m. performance of A Connecticut Christmas Carol at The Terris Theatre in Chester, Conn.
The East Haddam Food Bank is in need of many non-perishable food items, especially "the basics" such as soups, pastas, canned fruits and vegetables, and cereals, as well as paper goods and personal toiletries.
