OUR PURPOSE

The Williston Chowder Challenge will benefit the Williston Community Food Shelf and the Williston Police Officers’ Association.

The Williston Community Food Shelf is a non-profit organization that serves residents of Williston, St. George, Richmond, and Essex. Over the past calendar year the Williston Community Food Shelf served 3,200 families, which represents 9,800 individuals. This is a monthly average of 266 families and 816 individuals. The numbers of seniors and children being served is also rising, with calendar year totals at 1,148 and 3,612 respectively, averaging out at 96 and 301 respectively served each month. This year the Food Shelf also provided 233 turkeys to needy families during the holidays. These turkeys were donated to the Food Shelf from local citizens and businesses.

The Williston Police Officers’ Association is a non-profit organization that uses monies to make annual donations to The Special Olympics Law Enforcement Torch Run and local fundraisers. The Association also provides its members with gifts for special events such as births or in times of mourning or health/medical issues. These gifts include teddy bears, flowers, cards, fruit baskets and monetary donations to help curb the costs associated with extensive medical issues.
