Chamber of Commerce members donates over 500 lbs. of food

Chamber Events Coordinator, Jennifer Jarecki, accepted a certificate of thanks from Bob Maritano, the Chittenden Emergency Food Shelf’s Food Drive Coordinator.

Members of the Lake Champlain Regional Chamber of Commerce participated in a food drive at the Holiday Party at KeyBank last week. Members donated 547 pounds of food to the Chittenden Emergency Food Shelf which will feed 13 families for a month.

Tom Torti, President of the Chamber, commented that “this is what the Chamber is about. We believe that if people have good jobs, they are able to contribute to their communities in myriad ways. Collecting more than 500 pounds of food at a single event shows how much our member businesses care about our community.”

For more information about the donation, please contact Catherine Davis, Director of Government & Media Relations at (802) 863-3489, Ext. 206 or cathy@vermont.org.
