CHIP AND MARY HART CALL FOR TURKEY DONATIONS

Burlington, VT—Community members Chip and Mary Hart are calling on fellow Vermonters to donate turkeys to Feeding Chittenden, formerly the Chittenden Emergency Food Shelf, and they will match the next 500 turkeys donated!

Donors can drop off turkeys and donations at 228 North Winooski Avenue in Burlington. Thanksgiving fixings such as mashed potatoes, stuffing, gravy, sweet potatoes, corn and green beans are also needed.

A donation of $25 will help feed a family of four this holiday season!
