  • Food Bank for People & Pets in Burlington

    Posted by Sharon Lane on 5/15/2020

    Hey everyone,
    Sydnie from our PM Session is helping with a food bank in Burlington. She wants everyone to know how they can access food, pet food, and diapers, if needed. Here's the info:

    "If any of your students are struggling with food, pet food, or diapers, please tell them to stop by the St. Charles Church in Burlington (Peterson Rd) on Saturdays from 10AM-3PM. There are both English and Spanish speakers there as well."

    Thanks for your work, Syd!
