To The Editor:
Several articles in last week’s Standard mentioned the Woodstock (VT) Area Flood Relief Fund and Sustainable Woodstock.
We want to make sure that our community understands how the fund was established and Sustainable Woodstock’s role in it. This fund is the work of many.
As Sustainable Woodstock board members, we joined an amazing, dedicated collection of individuals and organizations to establish and operate the Woodstock Area Flood Relief Fund. Many non-profits and businesses have stepped in to support the effort.
Sustainable Woodstock agreed to be the official administrator of the fund because we are a federal 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and have a mission to help sustain environment, economy and community in the greater Woodstock area. Many of our volunteers, other board members, and Sally Miller, our director, are active in the fund’s activities. Yet we are just doing our part, as are many others doing theirs.
We feel privileged to be working shoulder to shoulder with the many committed individuals and organizations that are serving the community through the Woodstock (VT) Area Flood Relief Fund. We want to be certain that all who are a part of this vital community effort are recognized for their contributions. And the work has really just begun, so all are welcome to join in this collaboration.
