MOUNTAIN — Because of the tremendous generosity of the community House of Lazarus was able to provide food and gifts to 176. This number is up last year by 15 percent and included House of Lazarus Food Bank.

An increase in need is met with an increase in giving clients as well as financially vulnerable clients from Winchester District Memorial Hospital, Canadian Mental Health Association, and Eastern Champlain Health Link in an effort to reach as many community members in need as possible.
