Rev. David Lima, the Inter Church Council and all their Chaplains wants Southcoast Health to know our gratitude and our prayful support for all your heroic efforts on the front lines during this Covid-19 pandemic. 

You’re making a difference!


We would like to say “THANK YOU” to all those that braved the rain, wind AND the Patriot’s game this past Sunday night to participate in our 9th Annual Fundraising Banquet at Whites. We appreciate everyone that sponsored, placed an ad in our book, purchased a table, bought “Super” raffle tickets, donated items, bid on our silent auction items, made a donation, or simply attended.  We could not be more grateful for the support of our community!  Our success is dependent on your kindness and generosity and you did not disappoint. We will work diligently to continue

“Community Through Unity, Unity Through Service”.
