Peasant Market donates to local groups

MIDDLEBURY — This month St. Stephen’s granted $19,750 from the 2018 Peasant Market to Addison Central Teens, ACTR, Leicester School Summer Alive!, Camp Agape, HOPE, Housing Solutions, John Graham Shelter, Kids4Peace, Mary Johnson Rural Fun Delivery, Open Door Clinic, Otter Creek Child Center and Rock Point Camp.
Peasant Market has been an event on the town green for more than 70 years. Donations of household items, furniture, clothing, books, and treasures from our community members arrive at the church during the month leading up to the big day. In five hours people from near and far find treasures at bargain prices, have lunch, meet friends and contribute to good causes.
Items no longer loved find new homes, and the money funds nonprofit programs in our community. Most of the grantees welcome volunteer assistance. An example of this is The Teen Center, which is building a small sailboat with guidance and mentoring provided by St. Stephen’s “Boatwrights.” The Boatwrights are again building a boat for raffle at this year’s Peasant Market on July 6.
Mark you calendar now to come join in the fun and contribute July 6, 2019.
