TIRE DROP OFF STARTS TODAY
Many central Vermont residents benefited from last year’s inaugural “Wheels for Warmth” fundraiser conceived and implemented by Washington County (VT) State Senator, Phil Scott. The nearly $10,000 raised was earmarked for home heating help.
According to Jennifer S. of Barre Town, “We didn’t qualify for the federal fuel program because we were over income by $13 per month, but we had no way to pay for home heating oil. Luckily, CVCAC (Central Vermont Community Action Council) told us that fundraising events like Wheels for Warmth made it possible for families like me to get help keeping our house warm. We don’t know what we would have done otherwise.”
Expanded funding for home heating help this winter remains the aim as the final details are being ironed out for this Saturday’s (Oct 28) second annual “Wheels for Warmth” campaign. The event will again take place at Montpelier’s Dubois Construction, from 7 am until 3 pm.
