Customer donations, along with the matching dollars, are distributed to five community action agencies across the state to assist those in need.‘People’s United Bank’s generosity will help protect families across our service territory,’ CVPS President Bob Young said. ‘Combined with CVPS’s donation and grants from other Vermont businesses, the matching pool now totals $145,000.’‘People’s United Bank supports the Shareheat program because its design leverages additional funds and addresses a critical need in Vermont,’ said Kathy Schirling, director of marketing and community services of People’s United Bank. ‘We encourage anyone in a position to do so to join us in protecting our friends and neighbors who may be struggling to stay warm.’CVPS shareholders will provide $100,000 to Shareheat this season.

Anyone needing crisis fuel assistance should contact their local community action agency.CVPS Shareheat is a program of last resort for over 1,000 Vermont families each year.
