Lake Champlain Chocolates Donates Chocolate Eggs
Due to the spread of COVID-19 in Vermont, Lake Champlain Chocolates experienced a surplus in its supply of Easter chocolate eggs. As a result, the chocolate company donated over 150 pounds of chocolate eggs to organizations such as Feeding Chittenden, who delivered over 200 bags of groceries to clients of Spectrum, Anew Place, COTS, and others staying in hotels as a result of the coronavirus outbreak. In addition, the University of Vermont Medical Center received chocolate eggs to distribute to frontline workers, patients, and staff at the McClure Miller Respite House.
