Capstone and VSECU Partner on Fuel Your Neighbors to Provide Emergency Food and Heating Assistance to Vulnerable Central Vermonters

BARRE, VT—Capstone Community Action and VSECU have teamed up to launch Fuel Your Neighbors, an initiative to support emergency food and heating assistance for vulnerable central Vermont households.

Winter is a tough time for thousands of central Vermonters. Families often must choose between basic necessities like food and heat. Children and seniors are the most vulnerable to the high costs of winter, and are the most adversely affected. This year Capstone will work with over 7,000 people to help combat these challenges, putting food on their table and keeping the heat on during the cold winter months.

Capstone Community Action and VSECU, with support from The Point FM, are partnering on Fuel Your Neighbors to engage the community on this important need. Fuel Your Neighbors is a 12-week initiative to raise $50,000 to help prevent our neighbors from going to sleep cold and hungry. The initiative kicks-off on November 29, Giving Tuesday, which is the international philanthropic day of giving.

To inspire others to take part in this effort, VSECU will match the first $10,000 donated, magnifying the impact of each donation.
