OTTER CREEK AWNINGS, SUNROOMS & CUSTOM CLOSETS USES FACEBOOK TO SUPPORT THE CHITTENDEN EMERGENCY FOOD SHELF

Otter Creek Awnings, Sunrooms & Custom Closets of Williston, VT is sponsoring the Chittenden Emergency Food Shelf using Facebook to help raise awareness about hunger in the region.  For every new ‘fan’ of our Otter Creek Awnings, Sunrooms & Custom Closets’ Facebook page, the company will give $1 to the Chittenden Emergency Food Shelf up to $1000 through December 1st 2009. According to Rachel Moss, Development and Communication Director of the Chittenden Emergency Food Shelf, the Food Shelf provides five days’ worth of groceries to families and sees about 350 people per day while another 150 to 200 people per day visit the Soup Kitchen for a hot meal.  The organization runs several additional programs to reach other groups, such as people with limited mobility. “It is hard for me personally to know that even here in beautiful northwest Vermont, people do not have enough to eat,” explains Otter Creek Co-Owner Elizabeth Warren. “Instead of simply sending our donation, we wanted to launch an effort that could reach well beyond our own company. Facebook efficiently broadcasts the message of fighting hunger in this community to many, many more people who live here and want to help.” Facebook users can search for the company by typing “Otter Creek Awnings” in the website search tool at www.Facebook.com.  Becoming Otter Creek’s fan is the only action required of Facebook members to escalate the company’s donation to the Food Shelf.  For more information about the Chittenden Emergency Food Shelf, visit www.FeedingChittenden.org, or for more information about Otter Creek visit www.OtterCreekAwnings.com

Otter Creek is owned by Todd and Elizabeth Warren of Essex, VT.  The company designs and installs custom awnings, sunrooms and closets for homes and businesses throughout Vermont.
