The NHHEAF Network Organizations (NHHEAF) selected Spaulding Youth Center as the recipient charity to receive over 75 winter coats earlier this month. The coats were quickly distributed on the Northfield, NH campus to day and residential students in need of warm winter clothing.
As a strong advocate for supporting registered New Hampshire nonprofits, NHHEAF organizes a variety of fundraisers to benefit charities which are meaningful to their employees. Throughout the year, the organization chooses a charity monthly to receive either collected need items, such as canned goods or coats, or monetary contributions, which are presented as mini-grants, in exchange for the opportunity to enjoy a casual day.
“We are thrilled to be nominated and selected by the committee to receive this large collection of winter coats which so many of our children so desperately needed,” said Susan C. Ryan, President & CEO of Spaulding Youth Center. “As part of this process, my team was impressed to learn about all the charity-focused activities which were encouraged by the NHHEAF Past President Rene Drouin and continues to receive endorsement from the existing President Christiana Thornton. Generosity from organizations like NHHEAF truly make the difference to the children on our campus and in our community based programs.”
In addition to the monthly casual day collection, NHHEAF organizes a variety of fundraisers, including a Plinko game, penny wars, chili competition, pie baking contest, etc. To have their charity of choice considered, employees complete a form detailing why their selection should be considered.
