The Colchester-Milton Rotary's annual [Virtual] Fill The Truck For The Food Shelf 2021 starts May 1st!
Hunger in Vermont remains higher than at any point in recent history, including the 2009 Recession.
We will be collecting only monetary donations again this year (due to Covid) for the entire month of May. Last year our goal was $5,000 and thanks to our generous community we raised over $9,200 for the Colchester, Milton & Grand Isle food shelves. This year, due to continued critical need, we're setting the bar high at $10,000. See below for details and how to donate.

Milton High School Interact has been busy despite the COVID-19 virus and having to meet virtually since the start of the school year! MHS Interact is high school service club under the umbrella of the Colchester-Milton Rotary. It consists of students from all four years who want to make a difference in their world. They begin each weekly meeting with the Rotary Four Way Test: “Of the things we think, say or do; Is it the truth? Is it fair to all concerned? Will it build goodwill and better friendships? Will it be beneficial to all concerned?”. So far this year, they have donated food to the Milton Food Shelf, sent Thanksgiving meals for the MFCC food drive, and, for their international project, donated funds to Heifer International to purchase a goat, a flock of chicks, and extra money to reach places where it is most needed. Virtual meetings are a challenge, but these Milton High School students have met the challenge and represent the best of the next generation. They deserve a hearty “thank you”!
