Our staff is on the front lines during this pandemic. They are running a homeless shelter at the Holiday Inn, where more than 150 people have found safety, and we are working diligently to secure permanent housing for them. Our food shelf staff in Addison, Chittenden and Franklin county are bagging, boxing, and delivering food as efficiently as possible. Our Weatherization team, while keeping themselves and others safe, are winterizing homes for folks who would otherwise depend on fuel assistance. Our community ambassadors are running a hotline for immigrants and refugees to inform them of available resources and benefits.
We could go on, but most importantly, we're hearing from families who are seeking help for the first time. Any of them could be your neighbor, your colleague, your child's teacher.
Your support makes our communities stronger and people healthier. Please consider joining us as a monthly donor to sustain our work through this time.
