Local businesses are the beating heart of our Vermont communities. The little shop downtown, the restaurant on the corner, the repair shop down the street — these are the places we work and the places we gather. They are vital to the economic health of our towns and the our state.
Hundreds of small businesses were in the path of the raging floods spawned by Hurricane Irene. Getting them back up and running must be a top priority in our recovery efforts – particularly with the critical fall and winter tourism seasons on the horizon.
With this pressing need in mind, we have established the Vermont Irene Flood Relief Fund.
An expansion of the “Montpelier Alive” program begun after the May 2011 floods, the Vermont Irene Flood Relief Fund gives you the opportunity to directly assist damaged small businesses all across the state.
Founded by Montpelier resident Todd Bailey, the fund is committed to distributing 100% of donations to Vermont businesses in need. Our fiscal agent is the Central Vermont Community Action Council (CVCAC).
