Washington county youth receive housing help from FPF neighbors

“Thank you to the many individuals who have given free items to furnish apartments for youth who otherwise would not have housing. From bureaus, DVD players, a love seat, movies, a lamp, a kitchen table, many many Shaw’s stamps for cookware for all of our apartments, etc. Thank you from the Transitional Living Program at the Washington County Youth Service Bureau!!”
Christina, Montpelier Front Porch Forum

Seeking apple picker pole in Plainfield

“Dear community: Thank you so much for your generosity. Three people immediately responded to my last post about a bike stand, and were so incredibly generous… thank you! Since Front Porch Forum seems to work so well, I am now looking for an apple picker (one of those funny metal baskets on a long extendable pole for reaching the tall apples). If you have one you no longer need, I would be happy to take it off your hands, buy it, or trade you for an apple pie next fall. Thanks so much.”

Hospitality help and a long ladder in Essex

“Thanks FPF for bringing me two great people this year: Khris and Shawn. I posted for help in my small hospitality business and Khris came into my life. She is someone with a big heart and natural understanding of what is needed. Thank You so Much!!! Secondly I asked if someone had an extra-long ladder, and Shawn, of Advanced Appliances, amazingly lent me his ladder. I was able to finish two difficult painting jobs. Thank You again Shawn!!! And Front Porch Forum. This would not have happened without You!!!!”

Charlotte grandmother seeking euphonium

“I am looking for a four valve euphonium for my granddaughter to use/rent over the thanksgiving holiday. She has a competition just after returning home to North Dakota. She will bring her own mouth piece and needs a smaller mouth. Euphonium if you can’t spell it you can’t play it. I know it is a long shot- but you never know with Front Porch Forum. Thanks.”
