Community Resource Spread Sheet

Please visit the spread sheet if you are in need of assistance or willing to offer the local community your services. The link can be found here.

Campton Area Resource Center
The Campton Area Resource Center is a non-profit organization that operates the Got Lunch program for the local schools as well the food pantry through their thrift shop below Handyman Hardware. They primarily serve the Campton/Thornton area the same way that Ladders Thrift Shop and The Pemi Bridge House serves the Plymouth area. They receive a reduced rate on groceries and use funds produced from their thrift store (and private donations) to supply food to local people who are in need. Ladders Thrift Shop and The Bridge House in Plymouth are better funded because they cover a broader area and receive much more traffic. The Campton Area Resource Center has been struggling…  even before the Covid19 pandemic. People usually unload stuff around this time of year… and donations haven’t been coming in.  People aren’t shopping.

Gabe Nizetic, who just recently took over the operation of the CARC, said the organization really is in dire straits at this point, having only $900 in their account. We have injected the funds raised so far through the Roper Real Estate GoFundMe page, and the “Waterville Valley Foundation” has also stepped up to help save the CARC and the Hancock Fund.  The CARC is in the process of coordinating volunteers, scheduling food deliveries to the elderly, and will be fielding many calls in the upcoming weeks as the shelter in place order continues…

Again, thanks to everyone who have generously donated to date. If you haven’t donated yet and would like to help… click on this link for the GoFundMe campaign. Every little bit helps. Many have asked where to send a check instead of going through the GoFundMe campaign. If that is your preference, please send to:
