Central Vermont Council on Aging
Supporting Central Vermonters to age with dignity and choice.

CVCOA volunteer delivers hot meal and gift to Tilden House resident.
THANK YOU Central Vermont Community Members for All your Help with CVCOA's Holiday Meals Event!
Central VT Council on Aging volunteers and staff served 330 individuals with hot meals, gifts, and another 150 grocery bags on Christmas Day. This annual event has grown so big that we needed to find a larger space to cook meals, accumulate gifts and support our volunteers. After an extensive search, Barre Congregational Church let us use their meeting space and kitchen as our "base camp." We are so grateful to Barre Congregational Church and our many volunteers and staff who delivered in the snow on Christmas morning. What a great community we have!
