Every year, Chamberlin School hosts a community food drive to support school families during the Thanksgiving vacation week.  For the month of November, students and families dropped off non-perishable food items in their classrooms or in the school lobby.  At an assembly last week led by school guidance counselor, Dean Melen, students calculated that 524 pounds of food were collected!  Donations from Chamberlin staff and Shaws Supermarket allow for the finishing touches, including fruit, vegetables and turkeys.   When asked about the food drive, principal Holly Rouelle remarked,  “The generosity of our school families is heartwarming.  This food drive truly is neighbors helping neighbors in our South Burlington community.  What a remarkable community service learning experience for our children.”
