Plans for the annual fund- raising event to “Keep the Heat On” (KTHO), a well-known fi- nancial home heating fuel assis- tance program of the Plymouth Area Community Closet (PACC) are well underway. The popu- lar auction and raffle event will be hosted and live streamed from the Squam Lakes Science Center in Holderness on a soon to be de- termined January 2022 date.
The KTHO committee orga- nizes this annual appeal for dona- tions on behalf of the Plymouth Area Community Closet (PACC) in their mission to assist our re- gion’s needy families. Residents eligible for support are those living in one of the 15 commu-
 Plans for “Keep the Heat On” Fundraiser Underway
nities served by the PACC. (Al- exandria, Ashland, Bridgewater, Ellsworth, Campton, Dorches- ter, Groton, Plymouth, Rumney, Hebron, Holderness, Waterville Valley, Thornton, Wentworth, and Warren).
The State of New Hamp- shire’s Fuel Assistance Program helps families some, but it does not include funds for other es- sentials. With continually in- creasing costs for necessities like food, clothes and prescription drugs many PACC fuel assis- tance clients need additional aid. Consequently, KTHO donations are also authorized to benefit PACC’s other programs. Martha Richards, a seasoned member
of the KTHO committee said that KTHO has raised and dis- tributed over $400,000. 00 over the past 16 years. This funding enables PACC to sustain a robust home heating fuel assistance pro- gram (oil, propane, wood, pel- lets) and expand support for the PACC Food Depot. PACC pro- vides an average of 200 families per month assistance to obtain fresh meat, vegetables, and fruit through its Food Depot.
For many years, proceeds from ticket sales to a gala dinner and combined auction and raffle event generated the operating funds for KTHO. Last year, due to COVID pandemic restrictions the dinner party was cancelled.
Instead, the KTHO committee created and sold tickets to its first “UnEvent”, a presentation of the auction and raffle broadcast in real time over the Internet. Due to the persistent pandemic lim- itations, KTHOs key 2022 fund- raiser excludes a sizeable social gathering, but the “UnEvent” will once again be hosted from the Squam Lakes Science Cen- ter. Many local artisans, restau- rants, and other businesses are donating exclusive items for the auction and raffle. Tickets for the KTHO “UnEvent” will be on sale soon for $ 45.00. Your purchased ticket automatically enters you into the raffle, and bids for auction items will be ac-
cepted online during the live web telecast. More detailed KTHO information is coming soon, so watch this space!
The KTHO volunteer com- mittee partners with the Plym- outh Area Community Closet in their continued mission to aid our neighbors. Keep the Heat On—and the assistance it helps provide—is entirely non-parti- san.
