Thanks for raising funds for food shelf

Financial donations can be sent care of the Townshend Community Food Shelf PO Box 542, Townshend, VT 05353. Volunteer opportunities are available through Jean at 365-4113.

Just wanted to drop a brief note to thank supporters of the Townshend Community Food Shelf (TCFS).

The TCFS provides nutritious foods and goods to some of our less-fortunate neighbors in the community. Faithfully, volunteers open the doors of the food shelf every Monday evening at the Congregational Church at the Townshend Common at 6 p.m.

On Aug. 18, I completed a triathlon at Lake Dunmore and was hoping to help people sponsor me on behalf of the TCFS. I am very appreciative of the support received on the organization’s behalf.
