Hal Colston's Message About Poverty

All the media is great lately but I hope that the buzz about Hal doesn't overshadow his message.

Neighborkeepers, Hal's other non-profit, is working at "breaking the bonds of poverty". Poverty is OUR problem not just the individuals and their family.

If you are interested in participating in Hal's effort, Neighborkeepers has community dinners each week. Two of the weekly dinners are on Thursdays and two are on Saturdays at the Baptist church in Burlington. Visit Neighborkeepers' website for more details or to make a financial donation to support Hal's work.

Community Action Motor in Barre Closes

Community Action Motor announced last week that they are closing their doors. Community Action Motor was modeled after Good News Garage and has been in operation for many years. This is a great loss for low-income families in the Barre/Montpeiler area that they served.

Dennis Mahoney interveiwed Hal Colston on Positively Vermont. I have been with Good News Garage for over three years and I learned some new things about Good News Garage's history. It is worth watching.

Program Manager Live on The Pulse
