BENNINGTON, Vt. (NEWS10) — Businesses in Bennington are coming together to support employees of Southern Vermont College who will be out of a job after commencement this Saturday.

Participating businesses will be giving up to 10 percent of their sales on Saturday to a fund to assist the employees. Many say those who worked and attended SVC are a big part of the Bennington community, so they want to show a token of their gratitude.

This is just the first event being held as part of the Remember SVC project with more to come in the future.
