Northfield Dems to Meet, Initiate Food Drive - Dec. 13th!

Don't forget our upcoming meeting on Dec. 13th at the Brown Public Library at 6:30 p.m. The Vermont Democrats are sending a representative (Linda Weiss) to make a presentation to our group. There will also be some holiday goodies on hand. Come one, come all.

In addition to celebrating the holidays, we want to make our time together useful. There is a severe food shortage at Vermont Food Banks all over the state right now. Given the shortage and the holiday season demand is far outstripping supply. As we head toward our December 13th meeting, please consider bringing non-perishable food items for donation to CERV/the food shelf with you. It is a small, simple thing to do and makes a big difference for those in need.

Shaw's and Hannaford's have pre-bagged items prepared for local food shelves that you may purchase for $5, $10, or $15 that are easy to pick up and contain the kind of items the food shelves want for distribution. That makes it even easier. Also, to really make an impact, please consider asking your co-workers and/or friends to help you out by matching or adding to your own contribution. That way we can really maximize our efforts.

Thank you, and see you on the 13th!
