Quechee Elves – Helping Local Children in Need
Seven years ago, Quechee resident Lisa Lacasse started the
“Quechee Elves” program run through QLLA charities to benefit the
Hartford-Norwich Holiday Basket program. Lacasse began her involvement with the
basket program – almost 30 years ago – when she was living in her hometown of
Hanover, New Hampshire. She and several of her friends would take their
children shopping for the children in need that the basket program helps.
This past holiday season, Lacasse along with co-chairs Paula
Stearns and Sharin Luti, gathered 79 “Quechee Elves,” to support 91 children.
Extra funds donated to the effort were given to the program to be used to
purchase grocery gift cards.
