Dorcas Lee

Dorcas Lee, Board Member Emeritus

Dorcas created the Vermont Supports Our Troops Project in 2004, to send a bit of holiday cheer to our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.  That small project evolved into VT S.U.P.P.O.R.T.S, a 501c3 non-profit organization, dedicated to supporting our troops with care packages from home.  Thanks to her initiative, VT S.U.P.P.O.R.T.S has sent over 4000 holiday care packages to our troops on the frontlines.
