How yogurt can help Burlington parks programs

Burlington, Vermont - June 10, 2010

Time to collect your yogurt lids.

Stonyfield Farms is giving $15,000 to one of three city of Burlington Parks and Recreation programs. The program with the most lids wins the cash. The three in the running are: nutrition programs for low-income families, a natural playground that would be developed at Smalley Park and continuing development of the Burlington Community Gardens.

"And basically people who buy Stonyfield Yogurt save the lids and they get to chose to bid with the lid for different programs, their park and rec programs," said Nicole Fenton of Stonyfield Farms.

"You know they're all great, great programs and leaving it up to our citizens and people in the community, that's what's important," said Maggie Leugers of the Burlington Parks and Recreation Department.

The contest starts today and ends July 15. You can drop off your lids at Burlington-area supermarkets.
