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

Over the past year and a half the Williston Community Food Shelf has seen increasing numbers of families coming in for food, with an average of 270 family visits a month representing an average of 750-800 people. The numbers of seniors and children being served is also rising, with averages of 110 and 230 respectively served each month.

The Williston Police Officers’ Association is a non-profit organization that uses monies to make annual donations to The American Cancer Society, The Special Olympics Law Enforcement Torch Run, and the Williston Respite House. 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.
