ANGELS AND ELVES OPEN FOR SEASON

by Christian Mower on November 8, 2013

THE KIWANIS CLUB OF MOUNT WASHINGTON VALLEY WANTS TO MAKE SURE EVERY NEEDY KID GETS A PRESENT FOR CHRISTMAS.

IT DOES THAT THROUGH ITS ANNUAL ANGELS AND ELVES PROGRAM, AND ELF HEADQUARTERS IS NOW OPEN FOR BUSINESS ON ROUTE 16 IN NORTH CONWAY.

PROGRAM CO-COORDINATOR DICK FICKE – WHO WAS RECENTLY DESIGNATED A “WHITE MOUNTAINS TREASURE” BY THE MOUNT WASHINGTON VALLEY CHAMBER OF COMMERCE FOR HIS YEARS OF DEDICATED SERVICE TO THE COMMUNITY – IS THE HEAD ELF OF ANGELS AND ELVES.

FICKE SAYS THE NEW ELF HEADQUARTERS IS JUST SOUTH OF THE POLO RALPH LAUREN STORE AT 1618 WHITE MOUNTAIN HWY. IN THE FORMER WILD THINGS STORE ACROSS FROM THE RITE AID DRUGSTORE.

TEAMS OF RETURNING VOLUNTEERS HAVE ALREADY BEEN SET UP BUT FICKE SAYS ANYONE WHO WOULD LIKE TO HELP WRAP PRESENTS OR PROCESS APPLICATIONS IS WELCOME.

IT WILL TAKE A FEW WEEKS TO ASSESS WHAT THE PROGRAM WILL NEED IN TERMS OF DONATIONS OF TOYS, CLOTHING AND CASH.

IN PAST YEARS, THANKS TO THE GENEROUS CONTRIBUTIONS OF LOCAL BUSINESSES, INDIVIDUALS AND SCHOOLS, GIFTS HAVE BEEN PROVIDED FOR HUNDREDS OF CHILDREN.

ELF HEADQUARTERS IS NOW OPEN MONDAY, WEDNESDAY AND FRIDAY FROM NOON TO 6 P.M. UNTIL THANKSGIVING, WHEN IT WILL BE CLOSED. IT WILL BE OPEN EVERY DAY FROM DEC. 2 – DEC. 16, 2013.

CERTAIN ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS MUST BE MET AND THE DEADLINE TO APPLY FOR ASSISTANCE IS DEC. 2, 2013.

FOR MORE INFORMATION, CALL ELF HEADQUARTERS AT (603) 356-87-10 OR SEE THE WEBSITE AT www.mwvkiwanis.org.
