Message from the President

The historic and catastrophic flooding that we have witnessed these last few days has been heartbreaking. I want to thank all the emergency crews and volunteers who have been working tirelessly to protect the lives and property of Vermonters during this difficult time and keeping our communities safe.

We are committed to helping local, state, and federal organizations to restore our communities devastated by the recent flooding, whether it's through volunteering, program support, or outreach. That's what we do—we help our neighbors.

Our branch offices are all open and our dedicated staff are reaching out to businesses, municipalities and organizations to identify ways that we can provide assistance with rebuilding our communities. Together as a community is when we do our best, that's when we Shine.
