Letter: Spirit of Sharing helps local families


To the Editor:

Although the holidays have passed, the Catamount Rotary Club and Agency of Human Services would like to extend a giant THANK YOU to all the volunteers who made this holiday season's Spirit of Sharing a success. Together we provided Christmas gifts to 343 children in 163 local families, spreading holiday cheer and hopefully making a difference to the financial burden that comes around the holidays.

We'd especially like to thank the Southern Vermont Medical Center, SVMC's Auxiliary, and the Norshaft Lions Club for their generous financial donations. Thank you also to the MAUHS Interact Club who assisted in shopping for the remaining children covered by these donations.

It is uplifting to see that Bennington is full of generous people and businesses who step up to help their neighbors. Thank you again!

Jenica McEvoy,


The writer is secretary of the Catamount Rotary Club.
