The Woodstock Crew proudly showed Congressman Welch their work this summer, the tools they have learned to use, and the learning that surrounds a VYCC project---leave no trace, nature of the day, the impacts of climate change, and more. The crew explained about how they have to work as a team, how the work is challenging but that they get to see the impact it makes and that they know it will last a long time. Congressman Welch shared with the crew that he often hikes or runs on trails and knows that a lot of work goes into it, but it makes it all that more real to see a crew in action.

The Health Care Share project has become a vital community resource to hundreds of Vermont families. One Health Care Share Member explained that “without the Health Care Share we’d be in a world of hurt.” With funding from International Paper Foundation, VYCC was able to distribute over 74,000 pounds of farm-fresh produce to families who need it most.
