As many of you know, Anne and Dan Coolidge lost their home and all of their possessions due to a fire at their home on States Prison Hollow Road. Anne had worked for several years as a cook at Monkton Central School and Dan grew up in town. Anne and Dan are hopeful to have another home put on their land soon.
Members of the community would like to help them get back on their feet. Donations of money, gift certificates to Bub’s Barn or Bed, Bath & Beyond would be one way to help. Also, gift certificates to grocery stores might be helpful, or to other stores where they could purchase household items needed.
If you might have any furniture, kitchen supplies or anything else that you could give, please call Anne at 989-6627. If you have any questions, call Zandra Cousino at 453-3393.
If you would prefer to send a gift directly to Anne and Dan, their address is Anne and Dan Coolidge, 4109 States Prison Hollow Road, Bristol, VT 05443.
