19 Days of Norwich, Hanover, White River Junction, Lyme, and beyond
19 Days of the Valley is a holiday season fundraising initiative that shows how “keeping it local” and neighbors helping neighbors can make us a stronger community. In 2013, Dan & Whit’s in Norwich began collecting food and donating a portion of their sales to the Haven when they heard the Food Shelf was in need of goods—since then, businesses and community members across the Upper Valley have come together each winter to support the Haven and people in our region struggling with poverty, hunger, and homelessness. The community shops with local businesses, local businesses donate a portion of their sales to the Haven, and the Haven provides resources for people who need a hand up.
19 Days will look different in 2021, but your support (and our community spirit) is needed more than ever. We typically focus on the first 19 days of December, but we’re getting a head start because the local businesses who support this initiative could benefit from shoppers now. Check back often for the latest updates.
Do you have appreciated stock? We’re also accepting direct stock donations because we know many donors are switching to stock giving in order to receive tax benefits for the 2021 tax year.
