In times of such uncertainty, we are comforted by the many things that remain constant. We are reminded that a pandemic does not change who we are as VBSDS nor does it change our core values. It is our responsibility, and also our privilege to HOLD UP our community. Our commitment to elevating and strengthening our entire community remains steadfast. 

Individually and collectively we CAN make a difference

Please explore our list of local, small businesses owned by or affiliated with VBS families. We hope that you will be able to utilize any number of these businesses as a way to help our community not only survive, but thrive. 
This list was compiled based on VBS community members’ responses to an earlier email. If you would like to be included on this list we will gladly add your business - please contact Rachel Silton at or click here to submit the information. The Day School is not endorsing any of these businesses specifically, we just want to make sure the community is aware of the VBS families who can use our help now.
