It became evident in 1997-98 that the town of Branford should have a designated building to house under one roof the volunteer organizations that were proving vital services to the health and well being of the town's people. When the old Branford police station was not being utilized and was noticeably deteriorating, Pat Andriole, working at the Branford Counseling Center, led a campaign to renovate and convert the former police station into the Volunteer Services Center to house the Community Dining Room, Branford Food Pantry, BHcare Clothing Bank and Friends of the James Blackstone Memorial Library. Today, as an example for helping the needy and showing success, the Community Dining Room serves over 55,000 meals annually to our shoreline neighbors in need.
