Paddle project raising money for families with sick kids

Posted: Updated:

A vacation community in Grantham, N.H., is once again helping families with sick kids.

Fifty-four wooden paddles are on display at Eastman. The paddles, which were made in Caanan, N.H., have been painted by local artists. The public can bid on the paddles with the proceeds going to David's House, a home away from home for families with kids receiving treatment at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center.

The vacation community held a similar fundraiser a couple of years back with painted wooden loons. That effort raised nearly $12,000.

Organizers say it's a great cause.

"It is a special place for families. The unfortunate side is you never know something like David's House is going to be something that you can use. And we just want it to be there and continue to be there to support the families at do need. it," said Charlie Taber of the Eastman Community Association.

The bidding will continue through Feb. 22, when the winners will be announced. You can also bid online through the David's House website. Click here for more information.
