NorthCountry Announces Non-Profit Partner at the Champlain Valley Fair

The Champlain Valley Fair and NorthCountry Federal Credit Union Announce Community Partnership with the Cancer Patient Support Foundation

Essex Junction, VT – As the Champlain Valley Fair approaches (August 25 to September 3), the stage is set for a local partnership aiming to make a difference in the lives of cancer patients and their loved ones.

NorthCountry Federal Credit Union, the Champlain Valley Fair’s presenting sponsor, recognized the valuable opportunity to raise awareness for a community partner. Its search led to the Cancer Patient Support Foundation (CPSF), an organization that extends emergency financial assistance to people receiving treatment for cancer. CPSF serves Vermont and parts of Northern New York.

Jeff Bartley, Marketing Director for the Champlain Valley Exposition states “The Champlain Valley Fair welcomes 120,000 fairgoers through our gates every year. We are excited to use our event as vehicle to support the Cancer Patient Support Foundation and their incredible mission.”

Beginning June 8, 2023, any person who purchases a Champlain Valley Fair ticket online will have the option to add a donation to the Cancer Patient Support Foundation. Additionally, Monday, August 28th will be known as Cancer Patient Support Foundation Day at the Fair, with special offers for CPSF clients.
