The Shelburne Athletic Club was able to help provide hungry neighbors

The Shelburne Athletic Club was able to help provide hungry neighbors with meals through the food shelf and is raising money for the organization.

The Shelburne Athletic Club’s owner Louis Natale and his management team made the most of COVID-affected business recently by collecting items for the town’s food shelf.

The club raised money through a virtual Zumba class with instructor Lisa Cruser on Martin Luther King, Jr., Day — all the proceeds went to the Shelburne Food Shelf.

The club also donated $10 from each short-term membership sold in January.

“The Athletic Club has had a very challenging year. With the help of the PPP program, and a couple of economic recovery grants, we have been able to keep our doors open,” Natale said. “Our mission is not only to provide a wonderful space for people to work out, connect with others, and stay healthy, but to support our community. It makes us all feel good when we can help our neighbors.”

To keep the goodwill going, the club will donate $25 of each new, full-time membership sold in February, to the food shelf.
