Chuck Lecomte began volunteering with the Fruitvale Community Chest in 1974.

Fruitvale volunteer calls it a day after 45 years

A special meeting on April 16 has been called for the Fruitvale Community Chest

Charles “Chuck” Lecomte recently stepped down from Fruitvale Community Chest after 45 years of Community Service.

In 1974, Chuck was enticed to join the Board of the Fruitvale Community Chest.

That was 45 years ago. Since then Chuck has been president, vice-president and a board member.

He started the Business Canvass and has never missed a year doing his route for “Door to Door Canvass,” has been there for Breakfast With Santa and has helped to assemble and distribute Christmas Hampers.

This year Chuck has decided it’s time for some younger people to pull the wagon and is stepping down as a Board Member.

Chuck’s efforts over the years helped maintain the Community Chest and the present Board Members and the Community in general owe him a big vote of thanks and a big hug.
