Groundworks thanks restaurant for fundraising evening

The writer works as executive director of Groundworks Collaborative.

On behalf of the staff, board, residents, and clients of Groundworks Collaborative, I extend our great and sincere thanks to Elliot Street Fish, Chips & More for selecting our organization to participate as the beneficiary of its inaugural Feeding Frenzy.

The restaurant hosted the event on Nov. 4 and attracted a large and generous crowd. Sixty percent of the proceeds from the evening were donated to our organization.

Groundworks Collaborative is the agency created from the recent merger of Morningside Shelter and the Brattleboro Area Drop In Center. The hybrid organization continues to provide all of the services offered by each of the former agencies, including the operation of Vermont’s second-largest food shelf and our region’s only shelters for our neighbors experiencing homelessness. The Feeding Frenzy donation will help support these services and programs.

Elliot Street Fish, Chips & More is a great local eatery with a wide variety of food. It will continue to host a Feeding Frenzy fundraising dinner the first Wednesday of every month (from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.) with 60 percent of the proceeds going to a local charity or nonprofit. Please continue to support Elliot Street Fish, Chips & More.
