The Deerfield Valley Health Care Volunteers Inc. is pleased to announce that the tooth fairy has come again to the Deerfield Valley. A wonderful anonymous benefactor aka “the tooth fairy” sent us $4,500 to cover the cost of our school dental program this year. The Deerfield Valley Health Care Volunteers have sponsored this annual program for many years at the local schools. The funds provided by this generous donation allow the cost of teeth-cleaning to be subsidized so parents only have to pay a small amount for each child. Hygienists work at each school on a predetermined schedule. This year’s donation will also allow full funding for more families in need. Please call your child’s school for further information on how to participate.
The Deerfield Valley Health Care Volunteers fund three main programs: the school dental program, scholarships for students in the health care field, and monetary gifts to friends-in-need in the Deerfield Valley. As a non-profit 501(c)(3), we try to hold a variety of fundraisers but donations are always welcome. Our ability to raise funds has been greatly hindered in the past four years since we have not had a permanent location for our main fundraiser, Art on the Mountain. This annual summer art show, featuring many local artists, was a fixture in the valley for over 35 years and we hope that someday it will return. For now you can see and shop at our ongoing minishow at the Deerhill Inn.
To support our scholarship fund this year, we are having a Snowshoe for Knowledge fundraiser at the Hermitage on the afternoon of Febuary 13. We are also selling raffle tickets for a pair of Dion snowshoes. For more information about the snowshoe event or the Health Care Volunteers, visit artonthemountain.com or call (802) 464-2110 and leave a message.
Thank you to the wonderful tooth fairy for your support of our organization and of the children of the Deerfield Valley. And thank you to everyone in the valley for your continued support of all of our projects.
