LITTLETON, N.H. -- In an effort to help underprivileged children in the North County community have a magical holiday, Ammonoosuc Community Health Services and Littleton Regional Healthcare partnered to support the 23rd Annual "Caring Tree Project." This project was a joint community effort and included support from Ammonoosuc Community Health Services, Littleton Regional Healthcare, North Country Boys & Girls Club, Garnet Hill, Littleton Area Rotary Club, Woodsville Guaranty Savings Bank, Town of Sugar Hill employees, Passumpsic Savings Bank, LRH Patient & Family Support Team and other area businesses and agencies that helped promote this community wide initiative. The Caring Tree committee partnered with Carleen Quinn, Toys for Tots Volunteer Coordinator for Grafton County.
The need for support this year was greater than ever, stated Gail Clark, director of Marketing and Community Relations. Ammonoosuc Community Health Services has seen an increase in the number of families needing help every year, and this year was no exception. We were so pleased to be able to partner with Toys for Tots this year as many families asked for basic necessities including diapers, wipes, baby shampoo, and other toiletries.
