Letter to the Editor

Youth Catalytics thanks donors

On May 1 The Citizen printed a nice article highlighting the work of Youth Catalytics and our fund-raising shoe drive.

Over the course of spring through fall of 2014 many organizations generously worked with Youth Catalytics to collect and donate over 3,000 pairs of shoes! We could never have done this without everyone’s time and effort, which are two of the most valuable things we possess.

The value and importance of community effort to make a greater difference has been reinforced through this process. I would like to take this opportunity to personally thank Bio-Tek Instruments, Ben & Jerry’s, Burton, Charlotte Central School, Charlotte Children’s Center, Charlotte Library, Danform Shoes, Dealer.com, Dirt Chic, Fleet Feet, IBM-ECCC, Rhino Foods, Shelburne Health & Fitness, Town of Charlotte Green-Up, Twin Craft, Vermont Commons School, VT USDOJ and Waldorf School.

From all of us at Youth Catalytics; thank you very much!

Karen Vincelette, St. Albans
