SunCommon hosts benefit for Hurricane Harvey Wednesday

Tue, 09/05/2017 - 12:44pm -- tim

Vermont Business Magazine SunCommon, a Waterbury-based solar company, is hosting a benefit film screening at their Waterbury headquarters to encourage Vermonters to donate to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. The devastation brought by Tropical Storm Irene to Vermont in 2011, and specifically the Waterbury area, required the community to gather together as friends and neighbors while receiving the support from sources far and wide. Now that Vermont has rebuilt, it is time to aid others in their recovery.

This Wednesday, September 6 at 6:30 p.m., SunCommon is hosting a benefit film screening of the film Before The Flood. Free popcorn, drinks, and ice cream included courtesy of SunCommon.

SunCommon will match the first $2500 of community donations, dollar for dollar.

All donations will go to The Center for Disaster Philanthropy, a mission-driven organization dedicated to distributing donations strategically and increasing donor effectiveness through the lifecycle of disasters.

If folks can’t make it to the event, but want to donate, they’re welcome to drop in to SunCommon’s offices through the day or give online and send a copy of the receipt to info@suncommon.com. SunCommon will tally it up toward their match.

Lastly, thank you to Ben and Jerry’s, Collective Arts Brewing, Cabot, Stowe Street Cafe, and True Value Hardware in Waterbury for helping SunCommon pull this benefit event together quickly.

WHAT: Hurricane Harvey Benefit Event – Film Screening

WHEN: Wednesday September 6 @ 6:30 p.m.
