Remember those in need at this time of year
(This collection technically ends today but the bin is still in the store so please bring in those items you have been thinking about)
The Old Creamery Co-op is proud to support the efforts of Tapestry Health again this year. Tapestry Health is a community-based nonprofit in Western Massachusetts that offers affordable, high-quality family planning services, reproductive health exams, STD screenings, HIV counseling and testing, needle exchange, insurance enrollment, outreach efforts, and a WIC nutrition program. Many of its clients are unemployed, poor, and/or homeless and cannot afford  basic items such as clothing and blankets. As the days get shorter and the nights grow colder, these clients face a long winter. Help Tapestry keep them warm during this time.

Through December 14, Tapestry has a large plastic bin for your donations just inside the west entrance to the store. Donate blankets or warm articles of clothing (socks and underwear must be new), and for "giving the heat" the Creamery will warm you up with a free cup of coffee, tea, or hot cider. Thank you.


Acclaimed chefs and cookbook authors from around the world have come together to help with food relief efforts. SEE DETAILS HERE
Purchase this book* at the Creamery for $30 and $15 will go to food relief for refugees.
And you get to enjoy these recipes in celebration of our shared humanity.

Stone Walls II or a Holiday Bundle

The fall (and third) issue of Stone Walls II, our revived local journal of art, history, and literature, is here, with Windsor poets Patty Crane, Colin Harrington, and Audree Distad; a history of Chesterfield's "Bisbee Boys" and stories by Norm Stafford, Shirley Winer, and Mr. "J.G.H," who tells of an 1856 Hilltown blizzard. Plus more poetry by Patty Kimura, Laura Rodley, Dennis Pollock, Donald Welch, and Rebecca Coletta; Plainfield history by Judy Williams; excerpts from Mary-Beth O'Shea's "Book of Days"; and art and photos by Walter Korzec (cover), Eliza Lake, Mari Hall, Richard Laurie, and Chris Ryan.
All this for just $8 for a single issue or $15 for a Holidays Special, a bundle of the current issue plus the first and second issues, a great gift for local and out-of-town family and friends.
Just can't decide what to give someone?  

 A Creamery gift certificate will let them decide for themselves.  















Have a Great Holiday everyone!
