AHM Board Raises Funds for Local Children’s Programs
For the second year in a row, during the pandemic, the AHM Board of Directors and staff switched gears from a live fall auction to an online Holiday fundraiser to support children’s programs. This year’s holiday auction, which just wrapped up raised $10,297.63!
The AHM Fund Development Committee made up of board and staff members organized the event, which featured over 70 items this year. Bidders had two weeks to vie for their favorite items. The success of the event was made possible through the generosity of auction item donors, sponsors, and bidders, who supported the now very popular annual charity fundraiser.
AHM programs have reached thousands of residents over the last thirty-seven years. This regional public charity serves the towns of Andover, Columbia, Hebron, and Marlborough. Programs and services focus on the social and emotional well-being of children, teens, young adults, seniors, and families. The regional charity offers four categories of services, including mental health, prevention, youth, and family development.
Fundraising for any public charity is a lifeline to service delivery. With strong community support, the AHM Board continues to provide human and social services from the youngest to the oldest members of the regional community through the success of events like the online holiday auction.
