CHOCORUA — Artworks Gallery in Chocorua donated $2,000 from a successful holiday silent auction to Mount Washington Valley Supports Recovery Coalition and Tamworth Community Nurse Association.

Each organization was presented a check for $1,000 to support their valuable contributions to the community. We urge you to contact them if you need assistance or wish to donate and continue the giving.

Mount Washington Valley Supports Recovery Coalition was formed to assess the needs of the community, develop action plans to support, educate and empower our community and thus promote successful long-term recovery. Their focus is on celebrating the recovery movement and breaking down the stigma and discrimination by creating a unified voice for positive change.
