The Vermont Standard & Woodstock Region Journalism Foundation
The longest running weekly newspaper in the State of Vermont, The Vermont Standard needs our support. Unlike most other newspapers, the Standard, which already operates on a shoestring, has resisted the strategy of further stripping down its small operation to bare bones. Instead, we are attempting to preserve it as a quality newspaper that can continue serving our community well. The Woodstock Region Journalism Foundation is dedicated primarily to preserving the Standard and its role in informing citizens and supporting democracy in our area well into the future.

The Hartland Food shelf was established 19 years ago, in 2004, to collect food and monetary donations to provide groceries to those in need. Over the years, we have grown into an important part of the Hartland community, bringing together people for events such as our Friday hot breakfast socials. Our pantry services includes a full variety of prepared, refrigerated (milk, butter, cheese, yogurt, eggs, meats, etc.), canned/boxed food along with fresh bread, vegetables, fruit, as well as personal hygiene and household items. Each Friday when school is in session, we coordinate donating 18 bags of weekend food for Hartland Elementary school children. Our small but mighty organization is 100% volunteer run so all donations are devoted to stocking our shelves. We appreciate any size donation!
