In the tradition of New England communities caring for seniors and households that experience a lack of resources during the holidays, the Hartford-Norwich Holiday Basket Helpers has worked to brighten lives since 1983. The organization always has been and continues to be staffed entirely by community volunteers, including local Boy Scouts.
With the assistance of social agencies, churches, school guidance counselors and nursing personnel, households and seniors in need in Hartford and Norwich, Vermont, are identified in confidence to the Holiday-Basket Helpers committee. This is a totally anonymous program – the recipients’ personal information is never shared.
Hartford-Norwich Holiday Basket Helpers is approved as a tax-exempt, charitable organization by the Internal Revenue Service under section “501(c)(3)” of their Code: Tax ID 26-1651699
