PHP Thanks Major Sponsor of Upcoming Wine Tasting Fundraiser

By: BNEWS

 

Burlington’s premier charity organization is thanking a man who helped make an upcoming fundraiser an early success.

 

“People Helping People would like to thank Frank A. Vozzella, Assistant Vice President/Branch Manager for once again being the Major Sponsor at the 7th Annual Wine Tasting & Charity Auction that is being held this Sunday at the Cafe Escadrille and hosted by Bob Murray,” a note from the group reads. “Once again the event is sold out!”

 

“People Helping People is very fortunate to have a great community partner with Northern Bank and Trust,” the release continues. “Northern Bank and Frank do so much to support our organization in addition to the Wine Tasting throughout the year. We are very thankful.”     

 

People Helping People is the umbrella organization for the Burlington Food Pantry, the Holiday Program & Wish Tree and the Covenant for Basic Needs. These three non-profit and volunteer-supported organizations are striving to meet the basic necessities of Burlington residents who have been hit hardest by the economic downturn.   

In 2017 the Food Pantry distributed over 176,000 pounds of food to families in Burlington. This was in increase over previous years.  This past December the Wish Tree processed over 2000 gifts for children. PHP also gave the seniors at the food pantry a small gift for the holiday season. In November over 180 families in town were provided the fixings for Thanksgiving dinners.
