‘Wheels for Warmth’ announced Thursday it raised $64,000 this year to help Vermont families in need.
The drive collects used tires and sells the useable ones at affordable prices. The proceeds then help Vermont families heat their homes.
1900 tires were sold at this year’s October sale and over 2500 tires were recycled.
“It’s getting the most use out of a tire that is no longer good to them but is good to someone else,” Gov. Phil Scott said. “As well as raising money for the most vulnerable for fuel assistance.”
In its 14 years of existence, the program has raised nearly $500,000.
