A box for the clothing will be placed in the Community Lounge this week. Please consider bringing in clothes, shoes, and books!
About the Drive, by Kylee Heingartner:
A refugee is a person who is forced to leave his or her home and seek refuge elsewhere.
Refugees have experienced a great deal of struggle, uncertainty and loss. I am running a clothing drive to help support the refugees who have come to Burlington to seek shelter and a place of safety. This clothing drive is directed at the people of our community. I want to provide the refugees who do not have the means of providing for themselves with clothes for all sorts of weather, shoes for mobility, and books for the younger and older generations.
This clothing drive is designed to ensure that each individual in our community is healthy and comfortable, which in turn will have a positive impact on society when each individual is living a more nourished lifestyle.
Unfortunately, many would-be donors throw away perfectly good used clothes rather than offer them to a supportive cause. Through this project I intend to inspire hope and self-confidence for people all walks of life, to assist them in feeling successful, valuable and dignified. By recycling clothing, shoes and books we are reusing resources that are limited on our planet. This is an environmentally sound way of consuming less and providing more!

Come discuss the formation of a men's amateur futball team to compete in the Vermont Amateur Soccer League this summer 2011. Check out the website for VASL details: http://www.hotstat.com/72943/index.html This is a very competitive league that plays all matches at the Tree Farm fields in Essex, May thru August.
Manager Bob DiMasi and Coach Odysseus Manzi welcome you and encourage you to invite other players connected to the Winooski area. This is a great opportunity to engage in community building and to sustain the healthy development of body, mind and spirit of it's youth.
The legacy of futball is an international activity of local and regional identities in the effort to engage in the passion for athletic and communal dignity. Winooski, VT represents a growing American populace of diversity and strengths to join this wider movement. It is our sincere conviction to foster the ideals and promise of the area’s youth in dynamic teamwork to engage in fair play, competition and unity.

While Washington is embroiled in the annual budget debate, I am concerned that severe cuts will be made to programs that benefit the most vulnerable, while the wealthiest are not asked to pay their fair share.
Vermonters have been hit hard by the current recession. I want to know how you and your family are handling these difficult times.
Let's discuss how we can prevent devastating cuts to programs that benefit our working families.
