City Lions collected food and cash for local food shelves

VERGENNES — The Vergennes Lions Club held its 10th Annual “Food from the Heart” Food Dive recently to benefit the Bristol and Vergennes Community food shelves. More than 1,000 pounds of food and $131 in cash donations were collected for the Bristol Food Shelf at St. Ambrose Church, and over 1,000 pounds of food and $145 in cash donations were collected for the Vergennes Food Shelf.
The Lions wish to give a special thanks to Boy Scout Troop 539 for their continued help with this project in Vergennes. Chairman Harry Curth says, “We could not have the success we have without them. Fifteen boys and seven adults donated their time on this important community service project.”
The Lions also want to sincerely thank the stores that continue to support the Lions in this special event: Champlain Discount Foods and Shaw’s of Vergennes, and the Shaw’s in Bristol. “You all deserve a pat on the back.”
