WCAX covered the latest in a series of resiliency pivots by the team at Prevent Child Abuse Vermont after the July flooding in Montpelier. This week, PCAVT announced that after losing all of the supplies for the annual awareness walk and losing its usual location on the Statehouse lawn, they are now planning for an online donation event instead.

Since evacuating their State Street ground level offices and loosing an estimated $80,000 in printed education and training materials, the team has continued to help the Vermont schools and families it serves.
