Belknap Subaru Donates Blankets and Messages of Hope to LRGHealthcare Oncology Patients


LACONIA, NH- For a third year in a row Belknap Subaru, in partnership with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS), has donated eighty brand new blankets to staff in the Anderson Ganong Cancer Center at LRGHealthcare, to be distributed to patients undergoing a cancer diagnosis.


“Through this donation, employees and customers at Belknap Subaru are able to show their support to local patients in their time of need,” explains Subaru Owner Mark Johnstone. “Everyone has a connection to cancer, and in partnership with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society we are honored to make this donation once again this year.”


Local elementary school students, along with Subaru customers and staff, wrote heartfelt notes of hope to patients, which will accompany the blankets.


“On behalf of our staff and patients at LRGHealthcare I’d like to thank everyone at Belknap Subaru and LLS for this very thoughtful donation of blankets,” states Chief Nursing Officer Theresa Champagne. “These gifts will most certainly bring a smile to patients receiving treatment here at LRGH.”
