Mount Mansfield Villages Update, 6/20/2019
As of June 1st, Mount Mansfield Villages is operational! We have volunteers who have been through a training to prepare them to assist MMV members, and all volunteers have passed their background checks.
We have a growing list of members who can use either our online “service request” system or their telephones to request a variety of services, such as a ride to the doctor’s, a weekly “check-in” phone call, or assistance with changing a light bulb in a difficult-to-reach location. Click here to see a complete list of the services MMV currently offers.
Please get in touch if you’d like to explore becoming a member, volunteer, donor, or commercial service provider. For more information, you can explore this website or call us at (802) 858-5381.
Mount Mansfield Villages Update, 4/8/2019
Mount Mansfield Villages would like to thank everyone who turned out for our Volunteer Open House last Wednesday, April 3rd, at the Underhill Town Hall. There were over 40 people in attendance and lots of good questions about volunteering with MMV!
Thanks to the Pleasant Valley Book Group for the refreshments and to Jericho Cafe and Tavern for donating the $50 gift certificate for the raffle. The big winner was Jennifer DeGeorge of Underhill!
If you couldn't join us but would like information on how to volunteer or become a member of Mount Mansfield Villages, please visit our website at www.mountmansfieldvillages.org or call us at 802-858-5381.
Keep a lookout for our Membership kickoff event coming in May.
Mount Mansfield Villages Update, 11/7/2018
Mount Mansfield Villages (MMV) is moving steadily toward an early 2019 launch date in the Cambridge, Underhill, and Jericho communities. We have received our non-profit status, selected the Helpful Village platform to manage members and volunteers, and are building our MMV website. Volunteer policies and intake forms have been prepared, as have membership applications. Two members of the Board of Directors attended the national Village to Village Network conference in San Diego last month and came home brimming with ideas and information from workshops and networking. Please see the October Network News for more information about the conference.
The Board is excited that our multi-year project to bring a Village to our area of rural Vermont will soon become a reality.
If you would like more information or would like to help with the final stages of development, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
