Norwich — Willing Hands will celebrate the purchase of a new, refrigerated delivery truck on May 9 from 5-6:30 p.m. at King Arthur Flour, 135 Route 5.

Willing Hands volunteers, friends, supporters and people interested in learning more about the organization are invited to attend.

The Lebanon-based nonprofit delivers fresh food to more than 50 local service organizations every week. It is seeking volunteers help its drivers this summer during busy times, and to glean fruits and vegetables.

The nonprofit raised nearly $65,000 to buy the 2017 Isuzu truck, with support from more than 110 donors, several local businesses, and challenge gifts from the Jane B. Cook 1992 Charitable Trust and the Rockwell Family Charitable Fund.

The new vehicle “will allow us to reduce the wear and tear on our 2011 GMC Savanna and provide more flexibility as our food donations grow,” according to a news release from Willing Hands.

The May 9 event will feature light refreshments, cake, “a few words of appreciation” and a toast.

To RSVP, email RSVP@willinghands.org or call 802-698-0265.
