The Williamstown Community Chest is postponing its 13th annual Fun Run, originally scheduled for September 12, 2020.Although we can’t gather as we usually do, we can do something sweet for our community. We invite our neighbors to support our local food pantries by stocking their shelves for the coming fall and winter. Everyone who brings a needed item for the food pantries will receive a thank you in the form of a coupon for a sweet treat at one of our local shops. Many thanks to MountainOne for underwriting this event.The pantries have shared lists of necessities that are not available through other sources. So far the list includes food items, paper products, personal care items, cleaning products, and baby care items including diapers and baby food. (See the list below for specific items.)
