All funds raised through this fundraiser will go directly to fuel assistance programs at one of five Vermont Community Action Agencies depending on the event location. Community Action Agencies exist nation-wide to provide important services to help alleviate conditions of poverty and support community development. Fuel assistance is provided to those with demonstrated need, often in an emergency situation where they don’t have enough money to keep themselves or their family warm. This important program bridges gaps for individuals and families allowing us to first address this basic need then working with them to try and address the root causes of their situation. There are many thousands of Vermonters that depend on fuel assistance support in emergency situations.
