A True Gem

The day that Carrie received her car, Margeaux shared the good news via email along with the photo shown here. She wrote, “An emotional and joyous morning for Carrie! She is one of those true gems in this world, with beautiful perspective and the will to keep on going. Here she is, with her new ride. So so happy for her!”

A Kid at Heart

What continues to surprise and delight us is how people who want to contribute find unique and meaningful ways of doing so. Laura Jean Whitcomb, editor of Kid Stuff and Kearsarge Magazine and owner of Howling Beagle Communications in Grantham, has found a distinct niche by delivering fun goodie bags to the children in the Haven’s After-School Program.

NH Food Stamps

We are watching New Hampshire Senate Bill 7, touted by some lawmakers as a way to curb abuse of the state’s food stamp program. The proposed change in the food stamp program has the potential to eliminate many low-income households from being eligible to receive the aid.

The Haven’s Food Shelf

Keeping the Food Shelf stocked so that any family or individual who needs to access it can bring food to their table is an on-going, critically important part of the Haven’s mission. We are grateful for the donations to the Food Shelf that come in from individuals and businesses all year round.
