The STUFF THE SHANTY project is underway, and already the first donations are in the Sugar Shack in downtown Poultney. Use of the Sugar Shack is donated by Travis Baptie of Loomis Paint and Flooring, and the PACC thanks Travis for his generosity.
Whether you love to knit, sew, crochet, collect gently used items or just pick up a few to donate, the Poultney Area Chamber is now asking for YOUR help to supply schools, organizations, and churches who distribute warm clothing to kids and adults.
Last year you donated hundreds of pieces of cold weather gear to help keep our local folks warm. Warm socks.. Hats. Scarves. Mittens and gloves. Ski masks. Boots. Even jackets and other outerwear.
So now the Poultney Area Chamber of Commerce is once again challenging you! We’re out to STUFF THE SHANTY! Bring your warm outerwear to the Stonebridge building or Williams Hardware, and we’ll get the Sugar Shack stuffed to the top!
We are particularly looking for warm socks this year, since our feedback from last year showed that kids especially really needed those. But adults need them too, so any size is good.
The last day to turn in your contributions is Friday, November 12, 2021, so the kids have them before it really gets cold. And by the way, the weather wizards say it will be a cold winter this year, and we want everyone to be warm this year. There are lots of places in town to get warm clothing, and you can donate starting now.
Help us to STUFF THE SHANTY – and help us to help others
