The Fill the Firehouse Food Drive will be held on Saturday, Oct. 24 at the Lincoln Firehouse. The fire departments in our five-town area will once again open their station doors from 9 a.m. to noon to accept non-perishable food and toiletry donations. All items collected benefit the Have-A-Heart Food Shelf which serves the communities of Bristol, Lincoln, Monkton, New Haven and Starksboro. Please consider making a donation to this cause. Cash and check donations will also be accepted. Suggested donation items include: pasta sauce, pasta, soup, canned beans (black & kidney), baked beans, canned vegetables, canned fruit, canned tuna and chicken, peanut butter, macaroni and cheese, cereal, toilet paper, bar soap, toothbrushes and toothpaste. Expired products, soda and sugary beverages will not be accepted.
