On Sunday, November 15 families from Brattleboro, Springfield, Chester, Rutland and beyond gathered at the Springfield Bowling Alley to raise money for Share Southern Vermont, Pregnancy and Infant Loss Support.
During the event, Share Southern Vermont kicked off their Angel Ornament Drive, a fundraiser for the holiday season. The crocheted ornaments were made by volunteers who donated their time. They are $5 each and can be hung on your tree as is, or personalized with a child's name.
They are available at the website: www.sharesouthernvermont.blogspot.com and look for the SSV table around your town in the coming weeks.
SSV would publicly like to thank the Springfield Bowling Alley, Goodman's American Pie, Ben and Jerry's, Cabot Cheese, The Vermont Teddy Bear Factory, and more than 35 other contributing businesses. They would also like to thank Norma Ippolito, Deb Shattuck, Beverly Foster, Shannon Pytlik, Susan Hurwitz, and Donna Lewis for making angels and Tom Cutler from Chester for making and donating beautiful hardwood memory boxes in 2010.
