Clergy Pull Together to Help Local People in Need 5 November , 2010

BRATTLEBORO, VT — Members of the local interfaith community met Wednesday afternoon to discuss how they would join forces again this winter to help people in need.

Seven members of the Brattleboro Area Interfaith Clergy Association talked with Melinda Bussino, executive director of the Brattleboro Area Drop-in Center, Inc., a non-profit corporation that runs the Drop-in Center and an overflow homeless shelter at Brattleboro’s First Baptist Church.

They said it seemed like a natural partnership.

“As people of faith, it’s what we are called to do — clothe the naked, shelter the homeless and feed the hungry,” said the Rev. Barbro Hansson of All Souls Church in West Brattleboro.

“There’s so much human need out there right now that it’s staggering,” added the Rev. Suzanne Andrews of the First Baptist Church.
