The power of community is undeniable, especially in the face of adversity. Vermonters have always exhibited resilience in difficult times, a trait that shines even brighter following the recent extreme weather events. This strength is once again evident as our local businesses rally together to support flood-stricken communities.
Enter Drinks for Dehumidifiers, a state-wide initiative slated for Friday, July 28. Local cafes, bars, tasting rooms, and restaurants across Vermont are pledging a percentage of their drink sales for the day towards buying dehumidifiers and other necessary supplies. These crucial devices will aid flooded communities, drying out homes and businesses, and contribute to recovery efforts.
Spearheaded by the good folks at Adventure Dinner, in collaboration with Senator Kesha Ram and the Queen City Saints, the goal is to raise $15,000 through this initiative. It's an ambitious goal in a short time, but as Vermonters, we know the power of pulling together when the need is immediate and the cause is worthy.
Want to participate? It's as easy as enjoying your favorite drink at a participating venue! Look at all these tasty spots!

Simply use the Venmo below to donate to Queen City Saints, the community group leading this effort. Every dollar will go towards purchasing dehumidifiers and supplies for communities in need.
Even as we enjoy our drinks and camaraderie, let's remember the reasons behind this cause. While we're not focusing on the devastation, we're well aware of its impact. This is a way for us to lend our support, show our love, and help keep Vermont Strong.
So come out on July 28, enjoy great food and excellent craft cocktails, support local businesses, and make a difference in our communities.
