It's that time of year again when the Valley Lions Club and the River Valley Credit Union in Townshend will give a helping hand to the Townshend Food Shelf.
Once again, for every donation, the Valley Lions Club and the River Valley Credit Union will match dollar for dollar up to $500. Our goal is to reach $1,000 by Christmas. We feel there is a real need in these economic times to help our community. Last year through the generosity of many of our neighbors and local businesses, we raised $3,000. There will also be a place at the credit union to donate non-perishable food.
Our organization thinks that it is important to increase community involvement, it makes the person donating food feel good and the persons receiving the gift of food feel good knowing someone cares.
Tony Dezendorf is the new person in charge at the Townshend Food Shelf and they are hoping for your much needed support. Stop by the River Valley Credit Union in Townshend to drop a donation in the jar or mail contributions to the Valley Lions Club, PO Box 153, Newfane, VT 05345.
