Holiday Stuff-A-Bus to benefit local food shelf

Saturday, Dec. 6 at 9 a.m. — LUDLOW — The holiday season is upon us and Black River Good Neighbor Services has announced that it will hold its annual Stuff-A-Bus food drive on Saturday, Dec. 6 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Shaw’s Market parking lot in Ludlow. This is one of the most important food drives of the year for BRGNS.

While there is abundant joy to be found at this time of year, it is also a time that marks significant need in our communities. This is a very busy time for BRGNS as this local non-profit organization prepares to deliver gifts and a full holiday dinner to those in need. Over 100 families from the immediate and surrounding towns will be helped this holiday season.

Food shelf volunteers will be handing out holiday dinner menus at Shaw’s Market and asking shoppers to help with the foods most needed: canned fruit, cranberry sauce, pickles, olives, mac & cheese, hot chocolate, cookies, tea, cereal (oatmeal), candy, carrots/peas, gravy, stuffing, margarine, corn, green beans, yams, and coffee. Donations of money are always welcome and greatly appreciated since much food will still need to be purchased.

Volunteers are needed to sort the food as it comes in, and countless other tasks are required to make sure that the Holiday boxes find their way to everyone who needs help. To get involved, call 802-228-3663 or visit 37B Main Street, Ludlow.
