Thank You Volunteers/Contributors! The 2014 Food Shelf Renovations are Complete!

Thank you to everyone who has contributed to the 'renovations' at the food shelf. So many of you have helped in so many different ways:
  • Working on the scraping, priming and painting of the building
  • Cooking hot dogs and handing out snacks to the workers
  • Running errands to make sure we had all the equipment, paint, clean brushes, etc.
  • Making financial contributions that helped us reach the matching funds to the $5000 grant
I can only write the words in capital letters to try to express our gratitude:


Please notice how great everything looks when you drive by, or drive by on purpose, to see how much brighter the building looks, and how much safer the driveway is for our clients and volunteers.

You can make a difference!
We are grateful to the Colchester Center Fire Department and Colchester Fire District #3 for use of the old fire station at a substantially discounted rate and for their generous contribution of $2000 to these renovations. In addition, we have received a grant from the State of Vermont to cover an additional portion of the needed renovations, however it won't be enough. Please make a gift today to support this one time appeal for building renovations. 
Your donation will help! 
  • Donating is easy and tax deductible. Send your check payable to CCFS to PO Box 625, Colchester VT 05446 OR make a secure payment via Paypal from our website.

Thank you so much for your support.A donation of $25 will provide one of many gallons of paint needed for the exterior of the building
  • A donation between $100 and $500 will help support the purchase of needed materials, gutters and new soffits
  • A donation of $500 will purchase and install one of at least 4 windows that require replacing
