Chester-Andover Family Center Needs Help

The Chester-Andover Family Center is now making plans for the Thanksgiving baskets for the food shelf recipients and needs your help. We need the following by early November:

Frozen turkey - 12-16 pounds, or

Roasting chicken, 5-7 pounds

Potatoes, fresh or instant

Canned vegetables, fresh if received in a timely manner

Canned sweet potatoes, large and small

Cranberry sauce

Stuffing mix

Turkey or chicken gravy, canned or dry mix

Pie crust, dry or refrigerated Evaporated milk

They can be dropped off during our regular hours, Tuesday, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Wednesday, 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

In addition, we always need basic non-perishable food. To encourage this effort, the Center is offering a 50 percent discount on Thrift Shop purchases for each grocery bag of food brought during October.

We offer a special thanks to M & M Excavating for repairing the sink hole and the front door step at no cost to us.

As always, clothing, toys, household items, and cash donations are always appreciated. We are located at 656 Depot Street in Chester, our telephone is 875-3236, our mailing address is P. O. Box 302, Chester, VT 05143, and our email is cafc302@gmail.com.
