Interlakes Community Caregivers, Inc. is pleased to announce that it has recently received a generous grant award from the Bald Peak Community Fund, a donor-advised fund of the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation.
“Community Caregivers is extremely grateful for the generosity of the Bald Peak Community Fund. Their support will help to provide rides to medical and personal appointments, grocery shopping and more for our Neighbors,” stated Ann Sprague, ICCI Executive Director. For over 20 years, Community Caregivers has provided thousands of local residents access to health care through escorted rides to medical appointments both local and long distance. Volunteers also provide assistance to meet personal needs through rides to and help with grocery shopping and other errands, all the while supporting women and families in the often stressful role of caregiving.
The Bald Peak Community Fund was founded in 2002 with the intent to give support to their neighbors and communities in need of essential services. Funds are raised from the members of the Bald Peak Colony Club and friends who value the rural environment of the Lakes Region, and who are pleased to lend support to the maintenance of that lifestyle.
Interlakes Community Caregivers is a 501(c)3 nonprofit volunteer organization that provides rides and other support services to assist neighbors to remain living independently at any stage of their lives, whether for a short term need while recuperating from surgery or illness, or a long term need to age in place in the comfort of one’s own home. Services are provided free of charge by volunteers to residents of Center Harbor, Meredith, Moultonborough and Sandwich. ICCI does not receive Federal or State Agency funding and relies on donations, fundraising events and grant awards such as this. In the past year, Interlakes Community Caregivers has provided over 2,700 services to 246 Neighbors and drove nearly 58,000 miles in Volunteers’ own vehicles.
