National Life has partnered with the city of Montpelier to help end childhood hunger in Vermont to gift the city its first “Do Good Cupboard.”
This cupboard will be placed outside the Montpelier Senior Activity Center, a location that is easily accessible so, as the sign on the Cupboard reads, anyone can “Take what they need and leave what they can.” This Cupboard isn’t intended to replace food shelves but act as an emergency resource for those who need immediate access to nonperishable food items, hygiene products, and cleaning supplies like laundry detergent. Many Do Gooders contributed to this Cupboard including Christina D’Agostino who came up with the original idea, St. Peter’s Feed the Children Heart and Soul Ministry in Delaware who offered blueprints of their own cupboard, Allen Lumber who donated the materials and our own Joe Blais who constructed it.
The cupboard will be installed as soon as possible. Prior to its installation, we will host a “Stock the Shelves” drive to ensure it’s never empty. Stay tuned for more details in the upcoming weeks!
