Lions will collect Toys for Kids in Vergennes
VERGENNES — The Vergennes Lions Club is collecting Toys for Kids to be distributed to needy families in the Vergennes and Bristol area. Collection barrels are located at A & D Automotive, Dollar General, Jackman Fuels-Vergennes, Kinney Drugs-Vergennes, Long Trail on the Falls Physical Therapy, One Credit Union and Sheer Cuts.
Cash donations will be used to purchase gift cards for teenagers. Distribution will be made through the Vergennes Community Food Shelf at the Congregational Church in Vergennes on Tuesday, Dec. 18, Thursday, Dec. 20, and Saturday, Dec. 22. If anyone knows of needy families who do not use the Food Shelf, but could use some help with providing gifts for the holidays, it should be suggested they visit the Food Shelf on one of those three days to pick out a few gifts. All toys will go to families living in the local communities.
The Vergennes Lions is also providing sand buckets to seniors who need sand for their walkways with the cooperation of the city and Aubuchon Hardware. They need to call Lion Mark Delisle at 802-349-6715 to request a bucket.
On Saturday, Jan. 5, starting at 8:30 a.m., the Vergennes Lions will be picking up discarded Christmas trees for chipping into mulch. All decorations need to be removed from the trees and the trees at curbside throughout the city by 8:30 a.m.
