As we gather together with family and friends for the holidays, we’re reminded of how much we have to be thankful for – and also, that not everyone is so fortunate. One of our core values as Vermonters is to help our neighbors in times of need. Let’s channel the holiday spirit by inspiring others to do the same,” said Lt. Gov. Scott. “We can challenge ourselves to use this season of generosity and happiness as motivation for the year to come: There are many different ways to give back to others – and be better people ourselves — every day. I wish everyone a merry Christmas, a happy holiday season, and a safe and peaceful New Year.
