Sun Life Financial
For the past several years, Dover Children’s Home has partnered with Sun Life Financial for a very productive and positive Day of Caring.  Sun Life employees donate their time and talents for several hours each year to restore and rejuvenate various rooms of the Home.   The annual projects completed by Sun Life Financial create a more appealing and welcoming presentation to a building that has provided a safe haven to thousands of children over the past century.  Dover Children’s Home is very fortunate to have the ongoing support of Sun Life Financial and the entire Sun Life crew.  With Sun Life Financial, many hands make light work, allowing us to complete projects in a day that would typically take weeks to finish.  Sun Life Financial, located on Rye Street in Portsmouth, offers a diverse range of protection and wealth accumulation products and services worldwide.

The Fabulous Find
A HUGE thank you to The Fabulous Find, a boutique-style thrift shop on Route One in Kittery, Maine for the “fabulous” donation of a total of $13,608 over the past few years.  Absolutely incredible.  Since opening in 2010, The Fabulous Find has gifted gifted over $250,000 to non-profit organizations.   Thank you to all the awesome volunteers who make the shop so successful.

Ezra’s Way Neighborhood
Beginning in 2009, the Ezra’s Way neighborhood in Dover has come to the aid of Dover Children’s Home.  Through generous donations prepared meals for the children and staff; community service projects; preparing a special “breakfast for dinner” meal during the Home’s holiday celebration; working with area businesses to offer donations and discounts; providing access to sports scholarship funds; and making helpful donations of gift cards, financial support, and individual hygiene kits for the children, the Home has been able to re-allocate some of it’s limited resources to other critical operating expenses.  The impact this group of committed people has on our Home and on our restrictive budget is incredible.
Moose Lodge #443
We’ve been so grateful for the enduring support of the
Dover Moose.   Their non-stop community service and unconditional care for those in need in our community is truly inspirational.  Thank you for showing up in force at all of our annual events and for reminding us that you’re only a phone call away if we need anything.
