Food Donations

There’s a saying around AOTV:

If you feed them they will come.

Or maybe it is more along the lines of,

Volunteers work extra hard just before the food shows up.

Either way taking care of the approximately 150 volunteers each day for the two day Auction is an undertaking. We would appreciate any items you can donate to keep our volunteers at full strength. Some items that we need are appetizers, sandwiches, casseroles, pasta, hot meat dishes, pizza, Chinese food, salads, fruit/vegetable/cheese platters, meat platters, desserts, chips, soda, bottled water, juices, and anything else you can think of. If you donate it, the volunteers will eat it. Alternatively, you can donate a $25 gift certificate to a local supermarket, such as Hannaford or Market Basket, which we can use toward Auction Food. You can call AOTV at 978-249-4470 to find out how you can help. 

Your organization will get some publicity and you can support quality local television at the same time. We will announce the food donors many times throughout the two days. We’re very proud of our volunteers and our programs, and we hope you will support them.

Thank you for your consideration.
