As we all know, Quechee is a very special place, and part of that is the vast array of volunteer activities that you can become involved with.  For the past seven years Quechee Lakes Landowners Association (QLLA) members have been helping out the Norwich – Hartford Holiday Baskets by putting together a group of volunteers (called the Quechee Elves) who purchase holiday gifts for children in need.  Last year the Quechee Elves purchased gifts for over 90 children.

The Norwich–Hartford Holiday Baskets is a not-for-profit organization, run by volunteers. Their mission is to provide holiday “baskets” of warm clothing, gifts, and food certificates for households with children in need to share in the joy of the season. Last year, over 430 children were given gifts through this program. The Quechee Elves make a huge difference for this program, and for the families that are in need.

There are two ways to participate:

Sponsor one or more children. The cost is approximately $120 to $150 per child. If you are interested in helping, please contact lisalacasse52@gmail.com

If you would like to donate money and have the elves shop for you:

Please make a check out to QLLA Charities, and mail to QLLA Charities, PO Box 1301, Quechee, VT 05059

Please write “Quechee Elves” in the note memo on your check.
