The police departments of Bolton, Lancaster and Stow along with the Rotary Club of Nashoba Valley participated on March 27 in a Stuff a Cruiser Food Drive. They collected more than 4,000 pounds of food and personal-care items, and raised more than $250 in additional donations.
The Nashoba Valley club sponsored a contest for the three towns, to collect the most items, determined by weight. The results showed outstanding community support, with Bolton collecting 905 pounds, Lancaster collecting 1,749 pounds, and Stow collecting 1,348 pounds. As club Past President Mary Garcia declared, "WHEAT was the winner."
Donations benefited Clinton-based WHEAT Community Connections, which services the greater Clinton area and is open to all - particularly during the pandemic. During the week after the Stuff A Cruiser Food Drive, Rotary volunteers helped WHEAT sort through and organize all of the donations.
Many thanks to: the Bolton, Lancaster and Stow police departments; Shaws and Emma's Cafe, both in Stow; various town organizations and community developments; and, Rotary and community volunteers. It was a beautiful day to stuff all of the police cruisers and several more vehicles.
