CHARITY FASHION SHOW

From the Issue: 
January 2012

    Times are economically tough for numerous families around the country.  With the high unemployment rate and rising cost of commodities (milk, bread, eggs, etc.) it is very difficult for people to provide for their families.  Organizations like the Helping Hand Center in Troy are assisting people to lessen the burden of these financial constraints.  Helping Hand is foremost a food pantry. They also sell clothes and other donated items for about a dollar, which anyone in the may community purchase.  All of the proceeds are then used to buy food for families in need.  The number of families that need assistance are constantly growing.  With that said, it makes it very important for donations to come in.

MONADNOCK UNITED WAY

From the Issue: 
December 2011
This year's Monadnock United Way (MUW) Campaign is well underway, and we need your support.  Last year people from Troy received help from MUW-funded agencies 1,161 times!  Many of these agencies rely heavily on state and federal funding and, as some of you know, those dollars are being cut left and right.  The best way that you can continue to support your friends and neighbors is by supporting Monadnock United Way.  After all, you never know when it could be you who needs support from one of the 43 agencies MUW funds.
 
As a member of the MUW Board of Directors, I can assure you that each and every dollar we raise is needed desperately right here in our community.  Monadnock United Way has a unique allocations process which ensures fiscal and program accountability while meeting the social service needs of our region.  The Committee is composed of 22 volunteers from the entire Monadnock Region representing diversity of experience, gender and age.  Each individual member of the Allocations Committee commits approximately 100 hours to deliver a report crafted toward meeting the needs of our community.
 

CHRISTMAS WISHES

From the Issue: 
November 2011
With the holiday season soon approaching, many low-income families are thinking ahead toward Christmas and wondering if they can afford Christmas gifts for their kids this year.  Children shouldn’t have to do without presents at Christmas, which is why TD Bank partners with the Town of Troy Welfare Department, to ensure that every child has gifts to unwrap on Christmas.

If your family is unemployed or underemployed, we can help give your children a wonderful Christmas to remember.  Please contact the Selectmen’s Office during regular business hours, 242-7722.

TD Bank will set up a Christmas tree in their lobby on Thanksgiving weekend, decorated with tags with a boy or girl’s age and a wish.  I invite you to participate in the gift giving.  It offers a way for many people who are able, to give a gift to a less fortunate child.

Shopping the Way it Once Was
   
Remember…saving up your pennies and going out in search of that perfect, meaningful gift?  You stepped out of the cold into a store all decked out with holiday cheer.  You felt that warm, pleasant glow just looking around.  Then, you saw it!  The perfect present!  Once home, you carefully wrapped it and hid it.  You waited.  Then, at the perfect moment, you passed it over and watched someone’s eyes light up.  They probably still cherish it…  These simple acts of love and family were enough to make the season bright. 
   
So, this season, pull yourself away from the impersonal, flickering pulse of your computer screen and head away from the grating neon lights and crowds of the “big box” stores.  Instead, explore a little store right around the corner.  Who knows?  You may actually enjoy your holiday shopping.  It’s your time and your money, after all.  Make the most of it.  Enjoy the whole experience.
