About Our Auction

This year has redefined how we work - as the local United Way for 5 rural counties, 2020 has called for creativity, flexibility and connection with our partners to ensure Vermonters are safe, healthy, can access education, and are financially secure. We continue to address the ongoing challenges of COVID-19 recovery using this creativity - whether it means stitching masks, building back-to-school backpacks, delivering meals, or helping volunteers to find organizations who need their expertise, energy or time, we are redefining what it means to LIVE UNITED. This Kickoff 2020 Auction will support all of that work and those in our communities who are most vulnerable to COVID-19 including the essential workers served by our Working Bridges program, clients across the state served by our KEEP Financial Coaches who are experiencing financial hardship, children entering foster care through our Tatum's Totes backpack program, and all vulnerable Vermonters who our volunteers and partners work tirelessly to help. These funds are critical - as a United Way we are primarly funded by individuals and continue to look to offer our community members the opportunity to be philanthropists locally, to their own neighbors. This is what it means to LIVE UNITED.
