For the past three years 4,000 individuals, civic organizations, schools, and businesses have joined together to be Change Bandits as part of the Big Change Roundup for Kids benefiting the patients and families at Vermont Children's Hospital at Fletcher Allen Health Care.
Last year, more than $140,000 was raised, every penny of which went to benefit the services of Vermont Children's Hospital.
Please consider dropping your spare change in canisters at any of our four office locations - in Plattsburgh, Ticonderoga, Elizabethtown or Middlebury Vt.
Or go online to www.denpubs.com and click on the Big Change Roundup banner at the top of the site.
The roundup ends with a collection by primary sponsor WOKO at area Wal-Mart stores March 13-16, so please take the time today to drop off any change you may be able to spare.
No parent wants to consider needing the services of Vermont Children's Hospital. For those who do endure the unthinkable, however, it is a comfort to know the facility exists.
Let's do our part to ensure the critical services provided by Vermont Children's Hospital continue long into the future.
