Thunder Road Community Donates Thousands to Local Food Shelf
The Thunder Road community of fans, competitors and officials came together during the Bond Auto Labor Day weekend event to accumulate thousands of dollars in food and cash donations for the Waterbury Food Shelf. The Waterbury area was one of the hardest hit during last week’s Hurricane Irene devastation. The Waterbury Food Shelf was not spared and lost its entire inventory.Thunder Road and Labor Day event sponsor Bond Auto Parts came together during the 33rd Annual Bond Auto Labor Day Classic to organize a food drive to help the food shelf on Sunday, September 4. The Thunder Road community filled a Bond Auto semi-truck plus a Bond van with non-perishable food items. Also over $1,000 in cash donations was collected.
The town of Waterbury, like many towns in Vermont, continues to pick up after the devastation of Irene. The Thunder Road food drive is a great example of Vermonters coming together to help each other.
