A fundraising campaign for Capstone Community Action

Make an exponential difference

Spreading awareness is a great way to help support our cause.

Make a gift today and it will be doubled!

Thanks to incredible community support we exceeded our goal of $50,000! 

Winter is a tough time for thousands of Vermonters. All too often, families must choose between basic necessities like food and heat. Children and seniors are the most vulnerable and suffer the most.

1 in 5 children in central Vermont don't have enough food to eat; which impacts their ability to thrive in schools because they are hungry. 


40% of those in need of emergency heating assistance are retired seniors.


You can fuel your neighbors by making a gift today to put food on a families table and heat in their home. Plus, when you make your gift today, it will be doubled, thanks to the generosity of VSECU, Red Hen Baking Co. and other generous supporting donors.


Fuel Your Neighbors is powered by VSECU to benefit Capstone Community Action, with support from The Point. Please join this effort by making your gift today. 



Thanks to these local businesses for their support:
