Community Service

Community Service and volunteering are a big part of the lives of VIC employees.

Individually, our employees volunteer hundreds of hours annually for a variety of causes, including hunger, mentoring and literacy, animal rights, motorcycle safety, disability education, and community radio.

As a team, VIC portal staff volunteer a day each year at the Vermont Foodbank, usually by assisting with the preparation or packaging of food at its headquarters near Montpelier. Individual portal members additionally volunteer at the statewide farm gleaning operation and through family donations. Overall, the Vermont Foodbank helps feed as many as 86,000 Vermonters and the VIC team is proud to help with their efforts.

Featured: Ride4Cops

In June 2013, the Vermont portal hosted a spectacular Ride4Cops event at the Vermont State House with NIC CEO Harry Herington and also participated in a 100-mile memorial motorcycle ride on the 10th anniversary of a fallen Vermont state trooper. The State House event featured speeches by NIC CEO Harry Herington, family members of fallen officers, and several Vermont political dignitaries, including the Attorney General, the President of the State Senate, and the Lieutenant Governor, who rode to the event on his own Harley-Davidson. In total, the events raised over $30,000 for the COPS organization, with several thousand dollars in donations and in-kind contributions from the portal.
