Polar Non-Splash Extended

MORRISVILLE – The Morrisville Rotary Club is extending the Polar Non-Splash to benefit the United Way of Lamoille County’s barn renovation project to the end of March.

Due to COVID, the event is virtual and the “Shiver and Share” challenge has resulted in creative displays of chilly activities. Donors have biked, snowshoed, made snow angels, gone fishing, and snowboarded in summer attire to raise funds. To date, 150 individuals, businesses, organizations, and the faith community have raised $15,260. 

The goal is $40,000, with half the proceeds benefiting United Way of Lamoille County to complete the barn renovation, the new home of the Salvation Farms’ Lamoille Gleaning Program.

The Rotary will use the other half of the funds to continue its community service.

The Rotary and United Way of Lamoille County invite individuals and businesses to participate and help raise funds to finish the barn renovations. Visit uwlamoille.org/shiver or call United Way of Lamoille County at 802-888-3252.
