Flood Relief

How To Help

So many community members and families have been devastated by the recent floods. The destruction was widespread, but we focused most of our efforts here in our backyard, Lamoille County. We have met and seen countless volunteers and there has been a lot of great recovery work – but there is still a long way to go. Countless people have lost their homes, their crops, their businesses and their jobs.

Sadly, we know firsthand how challenging it is to recover, rebuild and thrive after a devastating flood. But it can be done through a whole lot of hard work, commitment from those of us unaffected, and money.

As our state continues to recover, we need people to visit. We need people to visit businesses that have not been affected, and we need them to visit those that have been as they begin to reopen. And while you are here (or not here!), please consider making a donation for flood recovery. Money donated to the below funds will get directly to affected families and businesses within days. THANK YOU.

The Vermont Community Foundation is collecting donations for the Vermont Flood Response & Recovery Fund 2023. All donations received will solely benefit the Vermont Flood Response & Recovery Fund 2023.
