November has arrived with some snow! And, the food shelf is ready for a busy cold weather season while working to maintain safety measures. Making use of the food shelf is relatively easy as we are a phone call away, with information collected over the phone and food pickup made convenient. Please encourage friends and neighbors who may need extra help or just don’t have enough to give us a call. We are here to help.
With holidays fast approaching, Christmas Holiday Basket applications are ready and available. Pick them up at the thrift store, food shelf or on our website (under the “More” tab). Deadline for returning is December 1st.
This year the Ludlow Baptist Church offers their annual Thanksgiving dinner on Saturday, November 21st. It has always been a sellout with an amazing homemade meal. However, only take-out will be available with advance signup.
It is with sincere regret that we have had to cancel the Stuff-A-Bus event this year due to growing concerns over COVID-19. We care very much about our volunteers’ safety and wellbeing and fully realize that their health cannot be compromised. Throughout the State of Vermont large food donation gatherings are being discouraged during this pandemic.
Although there will be no in person gathering at the Shaw’s parking lot this year, we encourage other ways to support our goal of filling the food shelf for holiday baskets. Checks and cash are always welcomed and may be dropped off at the food shelf or mailed to BRGNS at 37B Main Street, Ludlow, VT 05149.
We believe that with community support, we can lessen the impact of coronavirus on the agency mission by ensuring that no one goes hungry while keeping staff and volunteers safe. Sincere thanks to everyone for your support and understanding during this challenging time of the BRGNS organization and community as a whole.
