‘Tis the season to help others. Please show you care by sharing with those less fortunate. For those of us in Waterville Valley, there are several options…
Waterville Valley Elementary School students are leading the charge to collect non-perishable food products for the local food pantry for the holiday season. The public is invited to drop-off non-perishable food at the Waterville Valley Elementary School on Noon Peak Road by Friday, Dec. 21, 2012.
Food banks are being pushed to the limit this year, especially through the holiday season. After the first of the year, it’s anticipated that food bank shelves will be nearly empty. Please join me and my colleagues here at Waterville Valley Realty as we begin collecting non-perishable food items in the new year. We are hosting a food drive during our Winter Celebration party on Saturday, Jan. 19, but will be happy to accept donations anytime in January.
Our colleagues at Roper Real Estate are collecting children’s winter wear (hats, gloves, ski pants and jackets). Drop-off at the Silver Fox Inn by Dec. 15.
Toad Hall toy store in Town Square, the Snowy Owl Inn, and the Valley Inn are all drop-off points for Toys for Tots. Toad Hall is even offering a discount on toys purchased at the store and left for donation.
WATERVILLE VALLEY FOUNDATION
The non-profit Waterville Valley Foundation has undertaken its annual fundraising campaign. The Foundation, through the generosity of its contributors, has supported and funded athletic, cultural and educational programs throughout the region since 1977. New this year, the Foundation has taken on a big project: partnering with the National Forest Service and the National Forest Foundation to fund the restoration of the Greeley Ponds Trail. The Foundation has committed $10,000 and has pledged another $10,000 from this year’s fundraising efforts to the cause.
