Kids, Community and Volunteers. Trumbull Hall Troupe runs on the efforts of volunteers. Our goal is to provide fun theatre experiences for our teens and to contribute to the community with the funds raised by our performances. When you pay for tickets with a check you will be asked to make your check out to the supported charity of your choice. Our charities may vary each year but our core charities are:
- Traditionally, orphans in Africa have been taken in by relatives or neighbors. This tradition broke down in Zimbabwe because of increasing poverty and the deaths of many caregivers due to HIV-AIDS. The Zienzele Foundation was established in 2000 in response to the growing crisis. Building on tradition, they help villages achieve self-reliance and care for orphans themselves.
The Upper Valley Haven serves people struggling with poverty by providing food, shelter, education, service coordination, and other support. Since 1980 the Upper Valley Haven has provided temporary shelter and educational programming for homeless families and adults as well as food to anyone in need. The Haven offers support and fosters independence through four domains of service: Food, Shelter, Education and Problem Solving. The Haven is open 365 days per year and never charges for any of its services. We serve over 14,500 people per year.
- As New Hampshire’s only comprehensive, full-service children’s hospital, the Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock(CHaD) provides an extended system of care that offers advanced pediatric services. CHaD is recognized by the Children’s Hospital Association as a “children’s hospital within a hospital”. CHaD is one of 220 children’s hospitals in the United States providing care specifically focused on children. Fundraising efforts help fund critical services that support CHaD patients and families. These many non-billable services not only help CHaD kids when they are in pediatric intensive care of managing chronic illness, but are also vital to the general wellbeing of children and their futures.
