Vt program raises $35k for emergency fuel help

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) -- Vermont Lt. Gov. Phil Scott says this year's Wheels for Warmth program has raised a record $35,000 for emergency fuel assistance programs.

The program, which was started by Scott in 2005, raises money for emergency fuel assistance while selling safe donated tires to families in need or recycling the tires if they're unusable.

Vermonters donated their tires to various collection sites in central Vermont at the end of October.

This year the program sold 1,350 safe, donated tires, and recycled 2,400 unusable ones, up from the 1,700 tires that were recycled last year.

Scott says the program has raised more than $213,500 for emergency fuel assistance, sold more than 11,000 safe, donated tires, and recycled nearly 18,000 unsafe tires since 2005.
