continued Community Cupboard Manager Sue Bassett said demand remains very high given the economic downturn and high unemployment.
“There is a sense of goodwill every time we assist a family, but every new request is evidence of a growing need in our community,” Bassett said. “Without events like this challenge, Pack the Paramount, Stuff-A-Bus and the mail carriers’ drive, many local people would go hungry for lack of resources.”
Participants may deliver food to the Community Cupboard as often as they like, and should identify their organization as a participant in the Challenge when dropping off food items. Deliveries can be made to the Community Cupboard Monday, Wednesday or Friday between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. and Tuesday and Thursday between 4 and 6 p.m. through Sept. 23.
Anyone with questions about the Fill the Cupboard Challenge may call Adams at 802-747-5424.
