BRIDGEPORT, CT - On Saturday, eight-year-old Jeremy Rosa of Bridgeport will host his second food drive. With Jeremy’s first food drive, held in 2012, he donated 997 pounds of food to the Connecticut Food Bank. This year, Jeremy hopes to surpass that number.
“At just the age of eight-years-old, Jeremy Rosa has done something outstanding. I am incredibly impressed with his generosity and ambition,” said Mayor Finch. “Jeremy is an excellent example for all Bridgeport residents, not just our young people. With hard work and collaboration, we can come together to help those less fortunate than us.”
Jeremy’s Food Drive will be held across the street from Blackham School’s Thorme Street entrance on Saturday from 12 noon to 4 p.m. He will accept any non-perishable food items. For more information, go to his Facebook page.
In recognition of Jeremy’s efforts, Mayor Bill Finch presented Jeremy Rosa with a Mayoral Proclamation during the December 19, 2012 City Council meeting. Jeremy was also given a City Council Citation by Council President Tom McCarthy.
