For over 50 years, the Canton Community Health Fund (CCHF) has quietly, often anonymously, funded programs and activities that improve the health of Canton.This year, we gave nearly $29,000 to a variety of town related needs that are not supported by town property taxes.
Projects funded include:
- Fresh fruit snacks for Cherry Brook Primary Kindergarten classes
- An AED machine for the new town garage
- “Stop the Bleed” kits which will enable schools to address emergency situations before first responders arrive.
- Funding to complete the permanent lights at the High School track
Plus, we awarded a total of $4000 for the Dr. Diter’s Scholarshipto four graduating seniors pursuing a degree in a health-related field. The first recipient of the Dr. Diter’s Scholarship is a practicing pediatrician.
We continue to fund a variety of organizations in Canton, including the Food Bank, Fuel Bank and Focus on Canton.
But we need your help so we can do more. Please consider donating $50, or any amount, to CCHF. Your generosity will fund programs that would never exist. Thank you for your help.
