BURLINGTON—Vermont Housing Finance Agency (VHFA) will donate a pair of mittens stuffed with candy to Burlington’s King Street Center for every new fan that joins the Agency’s Facebook page through Wednesday, Dec. 15. “Our ‘mitten stuffing’ drive has been a holiday tradition at VHFA for many years,” according to Executive Director Sarah Carpenter. “This year, we thought we’d up the ante by agreeing to donate a pair of mitten or gloves stuffed with holiday candy for every new fan who joins the Agency’s Facebook page.” Facebook users can visit the VHFA page at http://on.fb.me/vhfaMittens, and become fans of the Agency by clicking the “Like” button at the top of the page. King Street Center is a non-profit community organization that promotes personal and social wellness through educational, recreational, and social programs to give children and families the life-building skills necessary for healthy and productive futures. The center serves more than 500 children and families each year. The Vermont Legislature created VHFA in 1974 to finance and promote affordable housing opportunities for low- and moderate-income Vermonters. Since its inception, the Agency has helped approximately 27,000 Vermont households with affordable mortgages and financed the development of approximately 8,400 affordable rental units.
