Letter to the editor: Local businesses exemplify our great community
Thank you to Middlebury businesses for your generosity to the online auction for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s Northern New England chapter. Addison West, Middlebury Bagel & Deli, The Middlebury Inn, Middlebury Mountaineer, Middlebury Natural Foods Coop, The Stone Mill, The Vermont Book Shop, and Vermont Coffee Company all donated items for auction and helped raise thousands of dollars.
Our county has several children and adults living with cystic fibrosis, and the money raised helps the foundation develop new medications and therapies that make a huge difference to their health. We are grateful to these small businesses for supporting our efforts, especially after such a difficult year.
This auction reminded me again why ours is an incredible community, and I hope you’ll join me in continuing to shop locally.
