Sally Stockwell Metro remembers the day at the Williston Community Food Shelf when a client began to cry. The woman explained that she had completely run out of fuel to heat her home and had no money to purchase more. Fortunately, Stockwell Metro, a member of the Williston-Richmond Rotary club, knew a way to help.

“I told her that I would give Matt Cota of the Split the Ticket Fund a call,” she said. “Within two days, he had contacted the propane people, they’d gotten out there and filled her tank for free. The propane burner also had to be restarted. It was complicated but was able to be resolved quickly.”
