National Life Group and Montpelier Alive announce downtown merchants as collection hubs for the Do Good Cupboard

Jun 19 2024

Montpelier Alive, the capital city’s downtown association, has coordinated with 14 businesses to act as collection points for the National Life Group Do Good Cupboard, located at 58 Barre Street in front of the Montpelier Senior Activity Center.


Established during the pandemic, the Do Good Cupboard is a community resource available 24/7 for those who need emergency, shelf stable items such as nonperishable food and hygiene products. It is not intended to provide on-going assistance but items that could be helpful during a time of hardship. Items in the Do Good Cupboard are often depleted daily.     


Identifiable by branded window clings, items can be dropped off at these locations:

  • Althea’s Attic Boutique
  • Aromed
  • Bear Pond Books
  • Book Garden
  • Capital Cannabis 
  • Capitol Grounds
  • Chesire Cat Clothing
  • Greenway Institute
  • Guys Farm & Yard
  • North Branch Cafe
  • Notion Fabric & Craft
  • Rebel Heart
  • Splash Naturals
  • Woodbury Mountain Toys

Please go to Ending Childhood Hunger | National Life for a list of recommended items to donate.
