Hannah’s House 2022 Fundraising Campaign
Hannah’s House, a local nonprofit mental health center, is kicking off its 2022 Fundraising Campaign and it needs your support! You may be familiar with Hannah’s House due to your connection to the Mad River Valley and Waterbury Communities. The need for mental health services in our rural location is greater than ever and your donation will help ensure support for those in need.
For the second year, Hannah’s House is conducting a direct fundraising campaign. This year’s campaign has been kicked off by Sugarbush Resort and supported with new major donations from the Foisy Foundation, The Warren Church, Alpino Vino, rk Miles, MRV Rotary, Seth & Alexis Dalton. Our goal is to raise $75,000 from individual & corporate donors by December 31,2022 to add to this initial fund of $25,000.
