VFDA program provides more than 6,000 gallons of free heating fuel

first_imgThis winter many Vermonters who do not qualify or have not applied for heating assistance will find themselves in need of help. For more than twenty years, VFDA’s Neighbor-in-Need programs have helped those Vermonters who are often too proud to ask.This year Vermont’s heating fuel dealers are continuing the proud tradition of giving back to their local community. Thanks to the generosity of the businesses and organizations listed below, the Split the Ticket program will provide more than 6,000 gallons of heating fuel this winter.Vermont’s heating fuel dealers are mostly small, family-owned businesses that live in the same community where they work. They know about the military family that is struggling to make ends meet, or the senior citizen who is faced with an unexpected medical bill. Heating fuel dealers see the need first-hand and are often the first to respond in a crisis, especially when the family is unable to receive government assistance.We thank all of the fuel dealers who have donated gallons and the businesses and individuals that have provided matching funds. Okemo Mountain Resort will hold its 2nd Annual Okemo Trot it Off 5k Race on Saturday, November 27 and proceeds will be donated to VFDA’s Split the Ticket program.  Source: VFDAlast_img
