Car Fit, Tree Time with Andover Chroniclers

ANDOVER — The Essex County sheriff highlights the Car Fit program in this month’s installment of “There’s Something About Andover.”

Car Fit offers tips for modifications to cars to make them fit people better as they age.

The second segment of the December edition of “There’s Something About Andover” is all about trees — Christmas trees. It features a tour of the Andover Historical Society’s Tree Time exhibit.

The local-access show airs Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday at 9 a.m. and Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 7 p.m. on Comcast Channel 8 and Verizon Channel 47.

The show is produced by the Andover Chroniclers, an all-volunteer group of seniors from the Center at Punchard. The group welcomes new members; prior experience is not necessary. Anyone who might be interested in any aspect of video production from planning to taping can email seniorcenter@andoverma.gov with the subject line Skip Wilkins.

‘Give Bread’ collection at Whole Foods Andover

Whole Foods Market has joined with Project Bread this month to provide for people in need. Through Whole Foods’ “Give Bread” program, shoppers can add $2 or $5 donation coupons to their grocery bills to help children and families struggling to put food on the table and eat healthy during the holidays.

“Give Bread” donations at Whole Foods in Andover will support local programs, including Greater Lawrence Family Health Center Inc.’s Hunger Prevention Program, Neighbors in Need’s Farming for Our Neighbors, and Groundwork Lawrence Community Gardens Program, among others.

In addition to the “Give Bread” program, Whole Foods Markets throughout Massachusetts are selling Project Bread holiday cards, proceeds from which will also fund the charity’s initiatives. To learn more, visit ww.projectbread.org/donate_wholefoods.
