Ludlow To the editor:
BRGNS, the Black River Good Neighbor Services applauds and thanks Shaw’s Market in Ludlow for making us the beneficiary this holiday season of Shaw’s Spirit of Giving 2012 Food Drive. The store pre-packaged several different sized food bags, which sold for $5, $10, or $15. The smallest size provided a full meal plus to an individual, while the largest bag could feed up to eight people.
The campaign began just before Thanksgiving and continued right through the holidays. Audrey Bridge, executive director at BRGNS, said, “We have always enjoyed fabulous support from Shaw's and are very excited about the impact their current campaign will have on our clients who have to choose between food and heat as their cost of living increases. This just goes to show that even in these tough times Shaw's is looking out for their neighbors in new and creative ways...”
