Annual Christmas Caring Tree
November 8, 2010
In an effort to help underprivileged children in our North County community have a magical holiday, Ammonoosuc Community Health Services and Littleton Regional Hospital is supporting the 21st Annual "Caring Tree Project." This project is a joint community effort and includes support from Ammonoosuc Community Health Services, Littleton Regional Hospital, Eastgate Inn, Garnet Hill, Littleton Area Rotary Club, FCI/Burndy, Adair Inn, Woodsville Guaranty Savings Bank, Catholic Charities and Toys for Tots.
The Caring Tree will be located in the lower atrium of Littleton Regional Hospital, decorated with tags identifying children in need by first name, age, sex, size and each child's wish to make their holiday season a special one. LRH invites community members to choose a tag from the tree and purchase a special gift to make each child's wish come true. Unwrapped gifts, including the tags and labels, should be delivered to the Eastgate Inn on Cottage Street in Littleton beginning on Friday, November 19, 2010 through Wednesday, December 8, 2010. Gifts can be dropped off at the Eastgate Inn reception desk.
The need for support this year is greater than ever, states Gail Clark, Director of Development and Community Relations. Ammoonoosuc Community Health Services has seen an increase in the number of families needing help every year, and this year they are expecting more families to ask for help so that their children can enjoy the holiday.
Anyone interested in selecting gift tags should contact the Office of Development and Community Relations at Littleton Regional Hospital at (603) 444-9304 or stop by Littleton Regional Hospital - H. Taylor Caswell, Jr. Physicians' Office Building. Tags are available now and The Caring Tree will be located in the lower atrium outside the cafeteria. If you don't care for shopping, donations can be made to Ammonoosuc Community Health Services. We have volunteers available willing to do the shopping.
