Front Porch Forum newsletters saw an abundance of offers to help those in need during Vermont’s Winter Storm Stella. Here are a few reflective of our members’ gracious community spirit!
“What an amazing community! I posted in the last issue, looking for help shoveling out because I’m disabled and can’t do it. Less than an hour after that FPF edition was sent out, I had TEN offers from folks wanting to help! I am so grateful and happy to live in an amazing community like this. Thank you!!” • Cara in Winooski
“Thanks for working together to dig each others’ cars out of the snow. It’s fun to shovel together! It allowed those of us without driveways to park in safety. Thanks for being good neighbors!” • Mindy in Burlington
“Two able bodies in town looking to help folks that need help getting shoveled out after the big storm.” • Dave & Eli in Charlotte
“I’m not a snow removal expert, nor equipped with a snowblower or plow, but if you’re in need of having your walkway or decks shoveled, I have a strong back and shovel and I’m available. Not looking to make money, just meet some neighbors in need.” • Adam in New Haven
“Thank you to the Snowblower Angel who was walking with their snowblower Tuesday night assisting their neighbors. I was out shoveling for the third time and your help was greatly appreciated.” • Carmen in Burlington
“From a security camera I just saw someone shoveling out our front sidewalk and deck/steps, which were buried under 26″ plus of snow. That person was our good neighbor who didn’t want my wife to shovel as I just got out of the hospital and can’t shovel.” • Sam in Burlington
“Thanks to 6 teens who came to our assistance with snow shoveling at our home. They were eager, very polite, and dug right in. When offered payment, they refused. When offered pizza, they refused. Our hearts are full of thanks for these young men.” • Bob in Bristol
