The Shelton community comes together to remember James McGrath, 17, who was stabbed and killed over the weekend.
The commemoration process for 17-year-old James McGrath is taking shape within Shelton Printing.
“We are already at 100 t-shirts today, yesterday we were close to 500 shirts,” said Adam Kuna, owner of the print shop.
Kuna has worked with the community over the past two days to create the jerseys ahead of Wednesday night’s lacrosse game between Fairfield Prep and Shelton High School.
McGrath played for the Fairfield Prep lacrosse team.
The giant “7” on the jersey represents the number McGrath wore as an athlete and the baby blue represents his favorite color.
Sabrina Angiolillo stopped by the store to have shirts made for her family. Angiolillo’s daughter went to college with James, also known as Jimmy by his friends.
“It’s really nice to see everyone coming together like this for such a tragic event,” Angiolillo said. “A lot of people don’t know each other, but we all come together as one family, so it’s warming.”
The game between the Fairfield Prep and Shelton High lacrosse teams is scheduled to start Wednesday at 6:30 p.m.
