To The Daily Sun,
The Santa Fund of the Greater Lakes Region was established in 1973 to provide charitable assistance to the Lakes Region children during the holiday season and throughout the year. This year we began our winter outerwear distribution in October. We have partnered with Salvation Army, St. Vincent Children's Foundation and local schools and police departments to assist families in the Lakes Region with their holiday needs. We were overwhelmed with requests for outerwear. We have been able to help over 650 children this season. The need this year appeared to us to be much greater than in past years and with the cold weather on the way we were anxious to get this done. We rely on cash donations to purchase these items and do most of our shopping in the off season in order to get the best deals possible for our money.
We received these donations after our first thank you was published and would like to thank the following people for their donations to help keep the children of the Lakes Region warm this winter: John and Terry Larrere, Lemay's Christmas Tree Farm, Jeremy and Tia Lacasse, Gator Signs, BIBA, Laconia Firefighters, and Laconia Police Department
If you would like to help keep our children warm this winter please send your donation to: Santa Fund of the Greater Lakes Region, P.O. Box 7454, Laconia, NH, 03247. No amount is too small and together we can make sure the children of the Lakes Region are taken care of.
