Vermont Woods Studios is a Drop Off Location for Load the Latchis- a food donation program for Vermonters in need. This event sponsored by Peter Case (Fish in the Morning) of WKVT, the Latchis Hotel and The Brattleboro Savings and Loan was originally planned to help stock the Brattleboro Drop In Center. But after Hurricane Irene, it has been postponed and expanded to serve the most needy throughout all of Windham County.
If you want to help your neighbors in need, bring dry, non-perishable goods to our Vermont Woods Studios office/showroom at 2531 Fort Bridgeman Rd in Vernon (next to the Post Office) anytime during business hours between now and Wed Sept 14 at 2pm.
We will then bring the food to Fish and Co in Brattleboro and work with them to distribute it throughout the county to the areas that were hardest hit by Irene and to those who need it the most. Help… we're hoping for a HUGE turnout from Vernon!!
PS– Looking for post-Irene status information or to volunteer to help Irene victims in the Brattleboro area? Fish's blog has all the news on who's open, who needs what, when, where and so on.

Tune in to Brattleboro Radio WKVT 92.7 FM / 1490 AM tomorrow morning from 10-11AM to hear Steve West and me chat all about the work of artisans like Chad Woodruff and Greg Goodman and the fact that Vermont is the fine furniture capitol of America.
Many thanks to Steve and Crystal for giving us this opportunity to spread the word about Vermont's awesome furniture makers and our online furniture gallery at Vermont Woods Studios.
