PUTNEY, Vt. – The Grammar School has raised $5,754.75 with its inaugural Ski For Hunger, which was held Thursday, March 1 at the school. All proceeds were raised to benefit the Putney Foodshelf.
The school presented a check to Foodshelf Board Chair Nancy Olson, Board Member Laura Chapman, and to Foodshelf Coordinator Hannah Pick at an all-school meeting Wednesday, May 2. “The Putney Foodshelf is exceedingly grateful for the efforts of all the students and faculty who made Ski for Hunger a big success,” said Pick. “Special thanks go to each individual skier who gave it their all, to their family and friends who support them, to Libby McCawley who dreamed up the idea, and to Matt Mitchell for rallying the support to make it happen. It was truly a joyful and inspiring event to witness, and we are thrilled that this is intended to be an event repeated for years to come.”
Throughout the school year, The Grammar School supports the Putney Foodshelf in a variety of ways. Each month, a designated class spearheads food collection from the school. In addition, special food drives happen in September when the school fills their school bus with donations for the Top the Truck drive, and during the holiday season, when they create special Thanksgiving baskets.
