Food Cupboard Receives Honor and Grant
EQUINOX TERRACE ASSISTED LIVING TO HONOR LOCAL VOLUNTEERS WITH ANNUAL SENIOR SERVICE AWARD
MANCHESTER CENTER, VT - 2016 – For the past 18 years, Reverend Jim Gray has paid weekly visits to Equinox Terrace Assisted Living to perform religious services and spend time with the residents at the assisted living community. Reverend Gray embodies a strong dedication to serving others, especially seniors, through his volunteer efforts and personal life. Because of his dedication to giving back and his willingness to serve others, Equinox Terrace Assisted Living is presenting Reverend Gray with the annual Equinox Terrace Assisted Living Senior Service Award. The senior service award is presented by Equinox Terrace each year to a deserving senior volunteer who dedicates their time to the benefit of other local seniors, and acknowledges the important work seniors do to give back to their community. Additionally, the community will also recognize Community Food Cupboard for the organization’s commitment to providing nutritious food to people in need. Community Food Cupboard and Reverend Gray will each be awarded a $500 gift from Equinox Terrace Assisted Living during a special ceremony held at the senior living community (324 Equinox Terrace Road) on Friday, August 26 at 2:00 p.m.
Stratton Foundation Supports The Community Food Cupboard
As many of you know, the challenge grant that Community Food Cupboard has relied upon as the basis of our spring fundraising campaign is no longer available. Upon learning this news, the Stratton Foundation has donated one-third of our food budget for the year! We are very grateful for this generous gift and hope it will inspire others to make whatever contribution they can towards our goal of creating a hunger-free community.
The Community Food Cupboard has provided groceries to local families in need for more than twenty-five years. Last year, we served 381 households. That’s over 1,000 of our neighbors who have turned to us for help. Your gift at this time will ensure that we can continue to be a resource for those who are struggling through difficult times.
If you would like to join in the spirit of generosity shown by the Stratton Foundation, please send your contribution to CFC, P.O. Box 864, Manchester Center, VT 05255. Donations of non-perishable food or personal care items may also be left in the collection box in the Manchester town office building, Manchester Community Library, or any of the religious congregations in Manchester.
Or you can donate online by clicking the Donate Button below. You can use PayPal or a credit/debit card.
