Helping Hands for Our Neighbors

Dummerston Cares is an all-volunteer organization committed to caring for our residents. We offer support for the health and wellness needs of people in our community through a variety of programs, services and resources. 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic many of our programs were suspended. We are now slowly restarting them. While we were unable to provide some of our normal services, we were able to establish new programs and services to help our community members during this challenging time. We were involved with the Everyone Eats program, distributing food prepared by local restaurants to provide residents with meals. We established a fund through the generosity of our supporters that has gone to help those in need of financial assistance during this time.

Thanks for all of your help in moving some furniture out of my garage. Now I can put my car in the garage this winter. It really helps when you can’t do some things for yourself any more.
