Hampshire Power raised more than $1,300 for Cancer Connection in Northampton, Massachusetts.
Collectively, we saw the unprecedented times of 2020 turn into “the norm” throughout 2021. Social
distancing and remote work continued to keep us safe but apart, resulting in pandemic fatigue for many
of us. But we would be remiss if we didn’t celebrate the good of 2021, too.
Each year, Hampshire Power puts on a fundraiser in support of a local organization. This holiday season
we chose to raise money for Cancer Connection in Northampton, Massachusetts. Cancer Connection
offers free programs and services to anyone affected by a diagnosis – from those newly diagnosed and
their families to caregivers. Although the pandemic is especially threatening for their at-risk clientele,
the Cancer Connection team continues to tirelessly work to provide one-to-one and group services
virtually. Grappling with the reality of a cancer diagnosis is already complicated, and with the added
struggles that come with the COVID-19 pandemic, these services are needed now more than ever.
Cancer Connection offers a haven where people living with cancer, their families, and
their caregivers can learn how to cope with their changed lives and bodies and
emotional turmoil by sharing strategies, resources, hope, and strength.
Between the outstanding care Cancer Connection provides our community and our long history with the
organization, our fundraiser beneficiary was a no-brainer. We are grateful to our networks for donating
$660 this holiday season, and we are pleased to match that.
