Because many Upper Valley families struggle to simply provide life’s basics, the Hartford Norwich Holiday Basket Helpers help at the holidays by providing gifts of toys and clothing for children. Sponsors provide warm clothing, requested toys as well as a food gift card to help with a holiday meal. HNHBH also delivers fruit baskets to home-bound senior citizens so they may share in the joy of the season.
As you may imagine, requests for assistance increase each year. Unemployment and the high cost of necessities, are factors that stretch many budgets well beyond normal limits. We hope you will be able to help the children and seniors in our neighborhoods have a Happy Holiday this year.
Sincere thanks from the Holiday Basket Helpers Team!
The delivery dates for gifts are December 4th and 5th,
between 3 pm and 8:30 pm at St. Paul’s Church in White River Jct., beside the UV Haven.
We have a NEW mailing address: PO Box 195, Norwich, VT 05055-0195
