Thank you Hickok & Boardman!

Hickok & Boardman recently raised over $300,000 for the United Way of Northwest Vermont and the Green Mountain United Way through their annual workplace campaign! We are so grateful for their devotion to this mission!

Hickok & Boardman of Montpelier spent an afternoon helping the Green Mountain United Way pack Tatum’s Totes for children going into emergency foster care. These children, who often must leave their homes with very little of their own, receive a brand new backpack full of supplies, books, toys, games, a blanket or a stuffie and all sorts of lovely new items to bring with them wherever they go.

Hickok & Boardman was kind enough to also purchase night lights and fleece blankets for the children receiving their backpacks. A handwritten note wishing the children well was also included in every backpack.

For more information on Tatum’s Totes or how you can begin a workplace campaign at your work – please call Michelle Kennedy at 802.371.8053 or the Green Mountain United Way office at 802.613.3989 or email

United Way Kickoff Breakfast and Day of Caring: Work that Connects our Community

Join us on Tuesday, September 25 from 7:30 am – 8:30 am at Norwich University’s Milano Ballroom to celebrate the important work United Way, our partners, and supporters are doing to connect our communities and help all in our five counties to thrive!

We will hear from inspiring speakers including this year’s Keynote, Shawn Tester, CEO and Executive Director of Northern Counties Health Care, and Green Mountain United Way partner in  NEK Prosper! and Working Bridges. Shawn will speak about the importance of connecting our communities to one another and to resources, and how to address the community’s broader needs to ensure the health and vitality of all within our region.

Enjoy breakfast as we honor Community Leaders and our 2017-18 Campaign Leaders.

This event is free and open to partners, local leaders and the broader community. RSVP is required to attend.


This year’s Kickoff Breakfast will be immediately followed by a Day of Caring Volunteer Day to support the Northfield Promise Community. We are helping families with children 0-5 in the Northfield area by building a brand new playground at the Northfield Falls Fields.
