Load the Latchis food drive is Aug. 19

BRATTLEBORO — Load the Latchis returns for the 12th year on Thursday, Aug. 19, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Join your neighbors, as the Latchis Theatre and Groundworks Collaborative tries to fill every seat in the 750-seat main theater with a bag of groceries - either an actual bag of food or a $20 donation for that purpose.

The folks at WKVT, most recently broadcasting as Rewind 92.7, will collect groceries by the theater side door on Flat Street.

If you can't make it then, of if you would prefer to make a cash donation, send a check to Groundworks Collaborative, P.O. Box 370, Brattleboro, VT 05302 (put Load the Latchis in the memo line).

A $20 cash donation allows Foodworks, Groundworks' regional food shelf program, to provide a two-week box of food for a family of four.

Last year's event raised in excess of $7,000.
