Community Connections

We are fortunate to be in a community which thrives on helping one another. We are proud of our connections with local businesses and other community organizations. Neighbors helping neighbors is the way to go.

Our friends at Muddy Moose encourage their customers to play arcade and pinball machines and donate all of the proceeds to LCFS. We received $250!

Janet Martinez of Burt's Irish Pub in Stowe encourages her customers to play games with the proceeds going to LCFS. We cannot thank Janet enough for all of her support!

When Board member Jan Tichansky's daughter Joan Molee and grandaughters Dominique and Francesca come to visit from New Jersey, they don't come empty handed. They come with toys, books, games and lots of "extras". What a treat for our clients!

When Wheel House Designs held their sock sale they asked people to bring food donations. For each donation they received three free pairs of socks. We received a truckload of food! Thanks to the Wheel House folks and their customers!

Our friends at IBM, Global Foundries and People's Bank got together on a food drive to benefit us and other food shelves. they made it fun by using the food to build models. What a great way to have fun and help at the same time!
