Despite the rain, South Burlington residents gave generously. Donations exceeded by far the numbers from last year. According to the Chittenden Emergency Food Shelf the amount of food collected was nearly three times greater than in 2010 – over 18,000 pounds of donated food. It is always amazing to see what we can all accomplish when we get together as a community.
