The 2013 Annual Food & Fuel FreezeOut surpassed it’s goal this year by raising $12,000 and collecting 800 pounds of food for the Carol Kaplan Fuel Fund and the FCS Food Pantry. Sue Mack, FCS Family Services Coordinator, and her trusty cohorts Paula O’Brien and Patti Bruce, braved a cold, wintry 24 hours, February 16-17, to raise awareness, collect money, and gather food donations. Volunteers, including local high school students and Boy Scout Troop #58 jumped in to help too. This annual event is an important reminder there are many residents in Freeport and Pownal who do not choose to be cold and who are often in the very difficult position of having to choose between paying for fuel or food. Thank you also to the generous support of lead sponsors, WindPoint Foundation, Martin’s Point Health Care Services and Norway Savings Bank.
