About this event

We all have a story.

Join us in sharing the stories of hope, success, and independence that continue to unite us and help make our community stronger.

Please join us on October 6, 2022 at the Barre Opera House in Barre, Vermont in celebration of coming together, sharing our stories, and the many good works and partnerships that have collectively supported the Central Vermont and NEK community through the most challenging of times.

We will be giving our annual awards in special acknowledgment to a number of individuals and organizations that have really gone the extra mile to care for others and each other.

Author Michelle Kennedy will read from her bestselling book, "Without a Net: Middle Class and Homeless (With Kids) in America," and speak about taking the shame out of poverty, while trying to not only shift policy, but change attitudes around how we as a society consider those under - and over - the poverty level.

Her strategies for surviving and thriving in economic crisis have been printed in many publications, including The New York Times, Salon.com, and the Christian Science Monitor. She also contributes to NPR.

Come gather with us and share in our community story on October 6, 2022 on the BREAKFAST-themed food, fun, silent auction, live music, book signing and more!

Through our 185 Fund, we are not only able to help individuals but also partner organizations like Downstreet Housing and Community Development. Downstreet is constantly working to make housing available to local families!

Over the last two years, Green Mountain United Way has been able to give Tatum's Totes - backpacks filled with school and art supplies, clothes, personal products, toys and games and more - to over 700 children going into emergent foster care!
