Assistance Needed For Flood Relief In Vermont

Attention Friends and Members of the Libertarian Party of Florida (LPF): We are reaching out to you today with an urgent request for your support in assisting and spreading the word for our friends from the Libertarian Party of Vermont (LPVT) during this critical time. Recent catastrophic floods have devastated large areas of Vermont, creating a humanitarian crisis that demands immediate attention.

Unfortunately, the LPVT’s efforts to fundraise have faced significant obstacles. Facebook has not only shadow banned many of their initiatives but has also placed several restrictions on the accounts of both Olga Mardach-Duclerc and Pat Ford. We kindly ask for your assistance in sharing, liking, and spreading the below information through any available channels.

LPVT is seeking the support of affiliates, members, and friends like us to help provide essential aid for flood relief. As Libertarians and as Floridians, we know just how important voluntaryism and personal mutual aid can be, especially during times of natural disasters. Please see below for ways that you can help!

How To Help

  1. Love & Share: Please take a moment to show your support by loving and sharing the following post, which is currently pinned to the Libertarian Party of Vermont Facebook page
  2. Participate: No donation is too small. We encourage everyone to contribute to this important cause.
  3. Walmart Wish List: LPVT has created a wish list on titled “Mutual Aid Vermont Flood Relief.” There is currently a sufficient supply of food and water on the ground, so the focus has shifted to acquiring cleaning supplies. Please visit the following link to view and select items for purchase.

How To Order

  • Go to
  • Place your order online
  • Specify customer pickup at: North Attleboro Supercenter, 1470 S Washington St, North Attleboro, MA 02760
  • Set the pickup time for Thursday, July 20th, 12:00 Noon, or the next available time.
  • Important! Specify Patrick Ford as the pickup contact.
  • Use [email protected] as the contact email.
  • For any questions or concerns, please call or text Pat Ford at 617-835-1899.

If ordering supplies online is not feasible for you, cash donations are also greatly appreciated. You can contribute through Venmo by sending your donation to @CoalitionRadioNetwork or donate via Give Send Go at the following link:

Pat Ford will personally drive a truck from Rhode Island to Vermont later this week to deliver the drop-shipped and donated supplies, as well as those purchased with donated funds. They have already successfully completed one trip, loading an 11′ cargo van to the roof! Cash donations will be allocated toward the purchase of dehumidifiers, which will be delivered to an LPVT distribution point in Johnson, Vermont. Documentation of all donations and purchased items will be on file with the Libertarian Party of Vermont. (Donation links have been purposely kept independent of any political account or organization to avoid campaign finance implications.)

Olga Mardach-Duclerc, the Chair of LPVT, is leading this crucial effort on the ground in Vermont. Please keep an eye out for her regular updates via email & give their Facebook page a follow. For any further inquiries, please feel free to reach out to Olga Mardach-Duclerc at [email protected].

Thank you for your generosity and solidarity!
