PATTEN, Maine — The Katahdin Valley Health Center has held an employee fundraising event to provide Thanksgiving baskets for local families. This year, 20 KVHC employees donated $700.00 toward this event, which was generously matched by KVHC for a grand total of $1,400.00. With this funding, we were able to provide 52 Thanksgiving baskets to local families in Millinocket, Patten, Island Falls, Houlton, and surrounding communities.
Each basket has everything needed to provide a complete Thanksgiving meal, including a 12-14lb turkey, stuffing mix, potatoes, gravy, various side dishes and trimmings, and a freshly baked pie. Community members that have received a Thanksgiving basket are given a voucher that can be redeemed for their basket on Friday, November 18th at their local Hannaford store. This yearâ€™s fundraiser was directed by Megan Day, with aid from Carrie Kyllonen and Lynn Appleton.
Katahdin Valley Health Center is a Federally Qualified Health Center dedicated to providing quality, low-cost health care to the Katahdin region. KVHC has clinics located in Patten, Houlton, Island Falls, and Millinocket.
