Pro-Bono and Charitable Activities

The VPO is continuing to develop opportunities for pro-bono activities.  We are also interested in participating in charitable events. 

In February 2015, the VPO created fifty Valentine's Day gift bags of food products and toys which were donated to the children of the Committee on Temporary Shelter, The Lund Center and The Ronald McDonald House.  Several members of the VPO and volunteers from area firms helped to fill the bags with donations from VPO members, colleagues, and several area businesses.   

In October 2010, the VPO gathered a team to participate in the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer of Chittenden County Walk on Sunday, October 17, 2010.  The team also took part in the Basket Raffle to raise additional funds.  The 2010 VPO Team included Corinne Deering, Co-Captain, Diane Brown, Co-Captain, Carie Tarte, Laurie Noyes, Lisa Laramee, Chantal McKeage, Sharon Lucia, Heather Moreau, Heather Rylant, Kim Jillson, Laura Gorsky, Leslie Mooney, and Deb Franzke.  In total the team raised $4,918.40 for the American Cancer Society.  

If you are interested in performing pro-bono services, please contact Kristin Provost, the VPO’s Pro Bono Chairperson at kprovost@veic.org.  If you are interested in participating in a charitable event with a VPO team, please contact a board member to discuss further participation.
