Zamberlan--the Italian boot-maker--donated $1500 of Zamberlan hiking boots to help Vermont victims of Tropical Storm Irene. The boots raced out of the store in no time as our store sits on the state highway running along the Winooski river which jumped its banks on August 28th and inundated the village of Waterbury, Vermont. While no damage was done to the store, many of our loyal customers lost just about everything on and below their first floors in a matter of hours. Four months later many--but far from all-- have been able to occupy their homes again, most still have long punch lists of projects to pull their homes back together. Thank you Zamberlan for your help in getting our community back on its feet. For updated info on flood recovery efforts in Waterbury, check out the ReBuild Waterbury website.
