Providing Support for Local Agency and Families
January 11, 2018
Littleton, NH - The Littleton Regional Healthcare family and friends supported The Burch House again this year with a variety of donated items. Stephanie Wilcox, RN at LRH led the drive to support the shelter in Bethlehem, NH. Stephanie states, "I look forward to taking the lead to support The Burch House. They work hard to provide support and emergency shelter to victims and survivors of domestic and sexual assault and violence. We are fortunate to have support like this here in northern New Hampshire. The least we can do is give back to their clients, who are need of so many items upon their arrival at The Burch House." Their services cover 19 towns in northern Grafton County. The Burch House is a volunteer supported agency.
In addition to support to The Burch House, every year during the holiday season LRH participates in community efforts to assist those in need. This year LRH participated in the Caring Tree project with Ammonoosuc Community Health Services and several other businesses in Littleton and surrounding towns. More than 400 children received gifts at Christmas because of this initiative. LRH also provides hundreds of hats and mittens to young patients at LRH. All of the hats and mittens are made by anonymous volunteers who like to "do good" behind the scenes. "The gift of hats and mittens is so important during the recent cold spell we experienced, states LRH's director of marketing and community relations, Gail Clark. We are very lucky to have such kind-hearted generous volunteers and friends. All of the yarn used to make the hats, mittens and scarves is donated by many generous individuals."
