Another successful Christmas toy drive at RCPCC!

Rutland Vermont holiday toy drive

This December’s toy drive at The Foundry in Killington was once again led by Mr. Teddy Arbo. It was a great SUCCESS!

Every Christmas Ted Arbo delivers all the many toys donated by compassionate people to our Rutland County participants. “I’m so proud of Teddy’s commitment to us and the children of the families we serve,” says Executive Director Ms. Mary Feldman. “A huge shout out to Teddy and all the donors. I also want to thank our unbelievable staff who consistently deliver on our promise to give our families all they may need for the holidays.”

In these difficult times that can feel even more overwhelming than in previous years, the post-Covid environment in Rutland County has been rough for our families. That’s why RCPCC works so hard to provide food and gifts, and a variety of social service supports people may need to not only get by but thrive. Our mission to break down barriers is a sentiment the staff at the agency takes seriously as more participants sign up at our Rutland & Brandon locations to receive services. Both RCPCC sites are busy signing folks up for our Christmas food and toy drive! LOOK for future updates on our website for all the many things this progressive Vermont agency is still doing for the Rutland County community.

Recent Burglaries Garner Donations and Support!

A big shout of gratitude for all those who donated money in a show of solidarity after the recent break ins. Our Pleasant Street offices over the holiday, as the Rutland Herald reported on, were broken into several times. When local businesses and organizations reached out, led by Mr. Matt Levandowski with The Heritage Family Credit Union, to help us in so many vital ways, RCPCC knew its value in the greater Rutland County community. In the wake of recent events, RCPCC remained steadfast in its commitment to serving families and all steps taken to ensure that our Pleasant Street building is now secure and safe! “We will continue providing our families with all they may need no matter what,” says Ms. Mary Feldman.

Merry Christmas to all our participants.

Looking forward to a productive 2023 & beyond!
