LISTEN Community Services Holiday Basket Program
Holiday Gift Baskets are a wonderful tradition that unites our community during the holiday season.
Our holiday baskets provide warm clothing and a food certificate for a complete holiday meal.
Receiving families fill out a wish list for warm clothing requests for children and senior citizens. Sponsoring families, businesses and religious organizations fulfill these requests.
The donated items are delivered to a central location by the sponsors. Volunteers assemble each bag, ensuring each is complete. Recipients pick-up their completed holiday “baskets” on their assigned pick up date in early December.
How to apply - call LISTEN at 603-448-4553 to make a Holiday Basket appointment. Appointments will run from October 1st through November 18th.
HOST FAMILIES NEEDED
The New England Music Festival Association (NEMFA.ORG) organizes an annual weekend of choral, band and orchestra concerts featuring the most talented high school musicians throughout New England. Hanover High School will be hosting the event on March 19, 20 and 21, 2020. The students attending the event stay with local families who provide accommodation, meals and transportation over the course of their stay.
We need local host families for 400+ participants from pick up at 8pm Thursday through final drop off Saturday morning. The hosts’ responsibilities include giving two or more students a place to sleep Thursday and Friday night, a breakfast on Friday and Saturday morning, a dinner on Friday evening, and transportation at the following times (schedule is subject to change):
- Attend a mandatory host family meeting at 8pm at Hanover High School, Thursday March 19th,
- Pick up students Thursday evening at 9pm at Hanover High School (following the host family meeting); curfew 11pm,
- Ride to Hanover High School on Friday morning to arrive by 8am,
- Pick up students at 5:15pm on Friday evening for dinner and evening activities at host family home (pick up is Hanover High School for chorus students and Dartmouth’s Spaulding Auditorium for band/orchestra students). No evening rehearsal. Curfew 11pm.
- Final ride to rehearsals/performances Saturday at 9am. All students will need to drop luggage at Spaulding Auditorium in Alumni Hall upstairs and then band/orchestra members will need to be dropped off at Hanover High School with their instruments and dress clothes (chorus students stay at Spaulding). This will complete your responsibility.
Host volunteers must complete a Housing Form and provide names, social security numbers, birth dates and phone numbers for all adult members of the household for a background check.
If you are interested in supporting New England teen musicians in this way, please email email@example.com to request a Housing Form. Also, please share this request with anyone you think may be interested.
Thank you for supporting our young musicians!
