DOVER, NH -- (Marketwire) -- 01/16/13 -- Employees of New Hampshire-based Sell My Timeshare NOW and VacationOwnership.com helped spread holiday cheer to the young residents of Dover Children's Home. Working together to fundraise through activities including bake sales and a chili cook-off, the employees of the timeshare resale, rental and brokerage company collected $1,680 in donations, a dozen $10 Wal-Mart gift cards, and tote bags filled with household items, which they delivered to the nonprofit facility in time for Christmas.
The historic Dover Children's Home was founded in 1893, initially as an orphanage. Today the program serves adolescents in need, strengthening family relationships through residential treatment services and educational programs. Offering programming for children ages 12 through 18, and a PILOT House independent living program for 16 to 18 year olds, Dover Children's Home serves teens from all areas of New Hampshire.
Donna Coraluzzo, Executive Director of the Dover Children's Home, speaks about the frustration of budget cuts in today's economic climate, yet points to contributions by Sell My Timeshare NOW, VacationOwnership.com and other supporting organizations, saying, "We continue to be diligent in finding ways to bridge the funding gap and... to provide exceptional care and life-changing treatment services. Thanks to the kindness of many community businesses such as Sell My Timeshare NOW who volunteered their time and donated gifts and helpful items to the Home."
But perhaps the teens of Dover Children's Home express it best, saying, "Thank you for knowing that we look to people like you to make us laugh and shed tears of joy that we sometimes forget we had."
Jason Tremblay, Founder and CEO of Sell My Timeshare NOW and VacationOwnership.com, says, "The men and women who work for our company are incredibly hardworking and compassionate. It is no surprise that they gave their time and money generously and enthusiastically to help make the holidays brighter for teens at Dover Children's House."
