Neighbors Helping Neighbors
Join me in the Best Dam Walk/Run http://bestdamwalk.com/ in support of Deerfield Valley Community Cares, neighbors helping neighbors, fuel assistance program. We often choose to live and own 2nd homes in Vermont because we love our winter activities and pray for powder days, but many of us also have friends and neighbors that live locally working sometimes 2-3 jobs (maybe teaching our children to ski or cashing us out at the local grocery store) who struggle with their annual heating expenses especially as we have cold and snowy winters back to back. The fund was founded in 2004 to help members of the community that don't otherwise receive assistance, but on occasion might need a little help to stay warm. The recipients of the funds are often identified by town officials, medical professionals, school staff, church pastors, concerned neighbors, and sometimes from fuel companies themselves. The Best Dam Walk/Run is a great opportunity to get some exercise in a beautiful location and raise money for a worthy cause. Even if you can't join me in the event you can still donate http://bestdamwalk.com/donations/ to help a neighbor in need.
