he following is a press release from the office of State Rep. Dan Carter–

The shelters in Bethel, Danbury, and Redding have been up and running and are providing much-needed services to those coping with the effects of the recent snowstorm. Some people have used shelters to charge phones and computers, while others just needed to warm up or grab a hot shower. When local businesses have been closed, the shelters have been there to ensure our residents have a meal to see them through. There have even been many local residents who stayed in the shelters overnight, including the shelter at Joel Barlow High School in Redding, which is the first time the shelter has been used as an around-the-clock facility. The bottom line is we are so very fortunate to have people in our communities who volunteer their time helping others in need. I encourage those who have benefitted from the shelters to help get the word out to those in need.

As for those familiar faces from each community who I have seen in the shelters over the last few days, thank you for what you do. To the Red Cross; thank you for supporting our community through difficult times.
