Cumberland Farms Joins Cause to Save Library

Local convenience store hosts fundraiser to support renovations

Cumberland Farms has kicked off a month-long fundraiser to benefit the fund to renovate the Morristown Centennial Library in Morrisville, Vt.  For the next month, Cumberland Farms will donate 20 cents from every Chill Zone beverage and cup of coffee sold at one of its nearby stores. The monies raised will support the library's capital campaign fund benefitting phase one.

"The Centennial Library is in desperate need of renovations," said Pat Stevens, events programming committee chair. "We can't thank Cumberland Farms enough for this generous donation and support."
Cumberland Farms aims to raise at least $1,000 for the library, the company said.

"This fundraiser is our way of saying thank you to the people of Morrisville and the surrounding communities for their patronage over the years," said Ari Haseotes, president of Cumberland Farms Retail Division. "It is our pleasure to give back and help save the library."  Cumberland Farms employees and library staff will hold a kickoff fundraiser celebration on September 10 at the store.

Framingham, Mass.-based Cumberland Farms is one of the nation's largest family-owned c-store chains. Operating in 11 states, in the Northeast and Florida, its mission is to make life easier for its on-the-go consumers with its trademark Farmhouse Blend coffee and Chill Zone beverages, as well as fresh food, dairy products, snacks and gasoline.

Family owned for more than 70 years, Cumberland Farms also has a long heritage of giving back to the communities where it operates.
