About the LRGH Nursery Guild
The LRGH Nursery Guild has been supporting women’s and children’s health initiatives in this region since 1956. Guild members raise funds to help support the LRGH Family Birthplace, Pediatrics and other local agencies. We sponsor community programs related to parenting, maternal, and child health.
Membership is open to any person interested in supporting women’s & children’s services in the Lakes & Three Rivers regions, and new members are always welcome. Meetings are held on the third Wednesday of each month from September through May at 6:30 p.m.
The LRGH Nursery Guild supports many ongoing programs and they include:
Equipment and educational resources for the LRGHealthcare Family Birthplace
Pediatric services at Lakes Region General Hospital and Franklin Regional Hospital
Car Seat Funding
We pledge $1,000 each year to the LRGHealthcare Nursing Education Fund, volunteer at local fundraising events for children, and provide child passenger safety seat checks. We also provide funding for the “Baby Think it Over” dolls used in local high schools to educate teens on the challenges of raising a baby. We have supported pediatric and family practices to purchase medical equipment that checks Bilirubin levels in newborns with jaundice.
How does the LRGH Nursery Guild raise funds?
Our semi-annual Baby/Child Boutique held at the Laconia Community Center each April and October continues to be our primary fundraising event. Each year, with the ongoing hard work and dedication of our members, the Boutiques continue to prosper. We also hold raffles for gift baskets and many individual items over the years. We invest the profits earned from all these efforts back into our community.
