Diners can take advantage of free parking in the Broadway Center and LAZ lots from 6 to 10 p.m. Just have your Restaurant Week receipt validated at a participating restaurant and present your validated receipt to an attendant at the Broadway Center or LAZ lot when exiting.
Tent City 2010
On Thursday, November 18 from 6 to 10 p.m., the City of New Haven’s Community Services Administration (CSA) will be hosting its annual homeless awareness campaign and fundraiser, Tent City on the Green, to benefit the increasing number of women, youth and families requiring shelter. As part of this event, CSA is raising funds to support shelters that exclusively serve women, children and families. Donations of any amount are welcome. Please make checks payable to “United Way” with “Tent City 2010” on the memo line and send it to Dr. Chisara N. Asomugha, Community Services Administrator at City Hall. All cash donations should be hand-delivered to the Community Services Administration on the 2nd Floor of City Hall. Online donations can be made at: www.uwgnh.org/tent-city. In addition, non-perishable food items will be accepted on November 18 to support the work of the Connecticut Food Bank. On the night of Tent City, tents, signs and supporters will cover the Green signifying a commitment to addressing homelessness.

We look forward to seeing you at Tent City 2010 on November 18 and having your support to ensure the health and well-being of women, children and families.
Being prepared for emergencies or disasters is important for the health and wellbeing of you and your family. One way to be prepared is to have a disaster supply kit in your home. A disaster supply kit is a collection of the most important supplies prepared for use in the event of a disaster. There are six items that you should stock in your home. They include water, non-perishable food, first-aid supplies, clothing and bedding, tools (like flashlights or utility knife), and batteries. And don't forget to prepare special items your family may need like contact lenses, denture supplies, diapers and pet food.
Click It or Ticket
The New Haven Police Department joins hundreds of law enforcement officials, highway safety representatives and safety advocates nationwide this week to support the Click It or Ticket Campaign. Support this effort by buckling up and encouraging your friends and family to do the same.
I hope you have a happy and healthy week!
Very truly yours,
John DeStefano, Jr.
