For years the Kiwanis Club of Laconia has supported Central New Hampshire VNA & Hospice’s pediatric programs. Their generous support has helped to improve the quality of life for many Lakes Region children and their families. Their contributions help us connect children with health care providers, make sure kids have immunizations, provide pediatric nursing care for sick children at home, teach prenatal care to expectant mothers and parenting skills to young families. You’ve helped us identify and work with kids with special developmental needs and allowed us to assist families who have children with chronic illnesses like cancer, cerebral palsy, cystic fibrosis, diabetes, genetic disorders, and many more. Our Pediatric Program goals align nicely with the Kiwanis Young Children Priority One project goals of: maternal & child health, child care & development, parent education & support and safety & pediatric trauma.
Come check out the Home Run Derby, you won’t be disappointed.
