Earlier this month, the Colchester-Milton Rotary Club presented the food shelves of Colchester, Milton and the Champlain Islands with checks totaling $4,166 from the Club’s "Fill The Truck For The Food Shelf" campaign.

The fundraiser began May 1 and lasted the entire month. 

Club President John Abry presented individual checks on July 8 to Colchester Food Shelf President Marcia Devino, Milton Family Community Center Executive Director, Sophia Donforth and Champlain Island Food Shelf Director Judy Ayers.

This is the fourth year the Colchester-Milton Rotary Club has held the “Fill The Truck” event collecting food and cash donations for local food shelves. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s event was once again virtual, with all donations submitted online.

The Colchester-Milton Rotary thanks all who donated.

“We continue to be amazed by the outpouring of support from our communities during these challenging times and are extremely thankful for the level of generosity of those who donated," Club President John Abry stated.

Milton's emergency food shelf, located inside the Milton Family Community Center, is open 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday to Friday. The Colchester Community Food Shelf, located on Main Street, is open from 12-6 p.m. on Wednesdays.
