On a periodic basis, Senior Solutions partners with local organizations to create highly visible, localized campaigns to raise awareness of food and fuel benefit opportunities. These campaigns last a full month, and include mailings to all residents, attractive informational brochures, and scheduled “open hours” in the community to assist with 3SquaresVT food benefit applications and a variety of fuel assistance mechanisms, including regular seasonal fuel assistance (“LIHEAP”) and Green Mountain Power electric assistance programs. Recent campaigns in Putney, Chester, and Andover saw dozens of families assisted as multiple organizations in each town pooled their resources to see “Every Resident Food and Fuel Secure!,” which has become the rallying cry of these efforts.
