Thanks to all our generous donors, #GivingTuesday was a huge success! We raised $4,085 from the community, allowing us to fully leverage our challenge gifts of $3,800, for a grand total of $7,885 to support residents like Shirley and Darlene and Junior. They are seniors who live at Pleasant Hills in Bristol and live on fixed incomes. They don't have to worry about their rent increasing because Pleasant Hills has a contract with the Department of Housing and Urban Development to provide rental assistance. ACCT is partnering with Housing Vermont to bring the nearly 40-year-old property up to today's standards. We would not have the capacity to take on these kinds of projects were it not from the generous support of the community.
Darlene and Jr have lived at Pleasant Hills since 2016. Jr drove a truck for a living and Darlene raised 7 children!
Shirley has lived at Pleasant Hills longer than she can remember! She is a Bristol native and worked as a custodian at Bristol Elementary School right down the street.
