To The Daily Sun,
The Santa Fund of the Greater Lakes Region operates year-round to help children and families. Last year we provided warm clothes, coats, boots and snow pants for children during the winter months to more than 600 children. We have provided food gift certificates and gas cards to families who have children with medical conditions. We have provided sports items for youth and teens so that they could be a part of a team or go to a dance class. We have sponsored children with special needs to be able to attend summer camp as well as awarded over 40 scholarships to students to attend Shooter's Gold Basketball Camp. We have supplied school supplies for children. We have been able to do all the many things and more with generous donations. Our program is a non-profit and funded fully by donations and funds received by the Children's Auction.
We are holding our first-ever fundraiser, Christmas in July. This is a prize calendar for the month of July and we will draw a name each day for a prize. Generous prizes have been donated by Bank of N.H., All My Life Jewelers, Salon Amara, Ken and Kathy Crane, Jump n' Joy, Goody Good Donuts, Carissa Lampedecchio, Bootleggers, Jamie Caldwell, Lisa Cornish, Gilford Cinema, Katie Pierson, Patrick's Pub, Union Diner, Jordan's Ice Cream, Chris McCarthy, Gilford Home Center, Marlee Guilmett, Che Bella Salon, Café Déjà vu, Wine'ing Butcher, Gilford Home Center, Anna Cochran/Crossfit Juggernaut, Osborne's Agway, Kohl's, Chili's, Irving Gas, Applebee's, Dominos and Kathy Twombly/Gate of Life. Thank you to all who donated these amazing prizes, well worth the $5 calendar purchase to win any one of these gift certificates.
If you are interested in purchasing a calendar for $5 they are available at The Downtown Gym, 609 Main St., or from any of our board members. Please help us raise funds to help the children of the Lakes Region. Thank you for your support.
