Vergennes Lions Club members Gary Russell, Larry Simino, Jim McClay, Bruce Bushey, and Mel Simmons stand behind their work, which was collecting 41 boxes of edible products for the Bristol Food Shelf located at the Shaw’s Supermarket in downtown Bristol.
Bristol Thanks to the generosity of the management of Shaw’s Supermarket in Bristol, members of the Vergennes Lions Club are calling last month’s food drive a success.
On Feb. 16, Lions Club members held their annual Food from the Heart Food Drive, along with other Lions Clubs in Vermont.
The Vergennes Lions collected 40 banana boxes of donated non-perishable items for the Vergennes Food Shelf at stores in Vergennes; 41 boxes of edible items were donated to the Bristol Food Shelf which is located at the Bristol Shaw’s.
“What really helped in Bristol, were 15 boxes of items donated by Shaw’s its self to start the day,” said Larry Simino, a Lions Club member. “The folks that manage the Bristol Food Shelf said they’ve been most appreciative of the support from Shaw’s and the people of the greater Bristol area year round.”
