Note of appreciation: Lions & Knights stock food shelf

Thanks to the hard work of two local organizations, the food shelf at HOPE has been restocked. The Middlebury Lions Club conducted their annual Food from the Heart food drive on Saturday, March 31, and the Knights of Columbus, at St. Mary’s Church in Middlebury, conducted a food collection during the season of Lent.
Thanks to both these efforts, hungry families coming to HOPE will find a great stock of food from which to select.
We are very grateful for these efforts, and to all involved — the Lions who stood outside stores and collected food; the many stores who hosted this drive; the store customers who purchased extra items to donate; and the parishioners who brought food to St. Mary’s. These efforts, and the many others that take place in our community, truly make a difference to many. On behalf of all of the people who are struggling to put food on their tables, and who find themselves at one of our local food shelves, HOPE sends heartfelt thanks.
Jeanne L. Montross
Executive Director
