LISTEN exists to help people in need, and it is during uncertain times like these when people need us the most. We are committed to leveraging every resource that we can to get much-needed assistance to our neighbors, and we deeply appreciate your support. You can learn more about our impact in the community in this recent interview of Kyle Fisher, LISTEN’s executive director. Thank you to our friends at CATV for providing this opportunity to share.
THANK YOU. A donation to LISTEN will strengthen our ability to provide services to address local food insecurity, ensure neighbors have electricity and heating fuel, provide youth with opportunities to go to summer camp, and more.
Given the recent easing of restrictions in NH, we are happy to share that LISTEN Community Services is putting plans into place to re-open our stores in Lebanon and Canaan. We expect to have both of these locations open in early June. In the meantime, we are readying each space to provide a safe area for our employees to work and for our customers to shop.
Until further guidance is received from Vermont officials, the White River Junction locations will remain closed.
Please stay tuned for more information about each location, including additional details on when we will start accepting donations of gently-used items.
Thank you, Upper Valley, for your support! We miss you, we miss thrifting, and we are excited to see you soon. Together we will continue our partnership to support our Upper Valley community with vital services such as food, heating and housing assistance.
In the meantime, LISTEN’s immediate focus to address other vital needs in our community is two-fold: 1) We are coordinating services for those that come to us for help, and 2) We are ensuring food is available at our pantry in Lebanon and at the community dinner hall in White River Junction. We will also continue to connect those in most need with other helpful resources in the region.
We still urgently need your help to continue providing critical assistance to people in the
Upper Valley who need help.
For close to 50 years, LISTEN has been on the frontlines providing vital support for people in the Upper Valley who are facing crisis. We will continue to do so, despite COVID-19, as financial, staff, and volunteer resources are available for us. Our mission has always been important; today, it may be more so than ever before. Please join us and donate today.
Helping the Upper Valley Community
LISTEN does not rely on state or federal funding. We are fortunate to have generous, loyal donors, volunteers and shoppers.
