19 Days of Norwich
As you are no doubt aware, food insecurity is a particularly dire issue in Vermont this year. As part of the 19 Days of Norwich fundraising effort, the Marion Cross PTO will continue the MCS tradition of collecting cans of tomatoes to donate to the Haven Food Pantry.
Each day throughout December we have a collection box positioned at each school entrance. Children may deliver their canned goods to these boxes each morning or afternoon. Our goal is to collect 300 cans of tomatoes to represent the nearly 300 children who attend Marion Cross School!
Hartford-Norwich Holiday Basket Helpers have served vulnerable community members in the towns of Hartford and Norwich, Vermont since 1983. Whether connecting households with children to sponsors who fulfill gift wish lists, or providing senior citizens with festive fruit baskets, the volunteers of HNHBH have created a tradition of generosity to those in need.
