Be a Sponsor of the Kids’ Christmas Project
Once again, Lake Sunapee Region VNA & Hospice (LSRVNA) is coordinating the Kearsarge Community Kids’ Christmas Project, and there are two ways you can help bring joy during the holidays by supporting local families in need:
- Make a cash donation to help fulfill the wish lists of area children and families this year by mailing a check payable to LSRVNA Elf Fund to: LSRVNA, PO Box 2209, New London, NH 03257.
- Adopt a family and fulfill their wish list.
For more information or to help in either of these ways, call the “Elf Line” at 603-526-4077 ext. 356 by November 17.
In addition to its ongoing bereavement support groups, Lake Sunapee Region VNA & Hospice (LSRVNA) has planned two special programs for the holidays. One is a two-part informational and learning program on how to handle the holidays after a loss. The other is the annual “Time of Remembrance” celebration to remember and honor the lives of loved ones lost.Read More
