Asnuntuckians (Asnuntuck retirees) are continuing their support of the Enfield Food Shelf. ACC retiree Deb Matusko (far right) has been volunteering at the Food Shelf since she retired from the college. The Asnuntuckians meet twice a year and members have donated food regularly to the local food shelf. This fall, the group collected 178 pounds of food and decided to make a monetary donation as well.
Paul Duval, a former counselor and economics faculty member at Asnuntuck, heard about this and issued a challenge to the group to match his donation of $500. Fellow retirees Bill Searle (far left) and Donna Jones-Searle, and Matusko presented the $1,800 check to Kathleen Souvigney, Executive Director of the Food Shelf.
