Hartford-Norwich Holiday Basket Helpers (HNHBH) have served vulnerable community members in the towns of Hartford and Norwich, Vermont since 1983. Whether connecting households with children to sponsors who fulfill gift wish lists, or providing senior citizens with festive fruit baskets, the volunteers of HNHBH have created a tradition of generosity to those in need.

With the generous help of community sponsors, HNHBH provides requested toys and clothing for children, while kind donors enable us to purchase fruit baskets for seniors; and also to provide food gift cards for all.

Our COVID-19 Response

In 2022, we are returning to our traditional model of support, with physical gifts purchased by sponsors, and pick-up by the children’s families. Recognizing that COVID-19 continues to be present in our community, we will follow appropriate safety procedures, doing all we can to protect every individual involved in our efforts.
