In the past 11 years, The Fabulous Find has given nearly $2 million to more than 155 area nonprofits, a history of giving that continues with a recent donation of $6,540 to The Chase Home. “We are so grateful for this donation, which will directly support our general operations,” said The Chase Home Executive Director Meme Wheeler.
Founded in 1877, The Chase Home in Portsmouth serves at-risk youth annually through prevention, early intervention, residential and community-based programs. Some youth are served in the community while others live at The Chase Home.
While noting The Chase Home is reimbursed from the state for its services, the rate does not cover all expenses. “There are always gaps in funding that we need to fill in order to deliver a level of clinically adequate care,” she explained. “Community support ensures we can close these gaps.”
Board member Ben Lindberg, who helps organize fundraising events for The Chase Home, expressed gratitude at the role played by The Fabulous Find in the greater Seacoast community. “They have an incredible business model, one that has literally saved and improved countless numbers of lives throughout the region,” he said. “We are humbled by this support.”
Founded in 2010, Kittery-based The Fabulous Find partners with recipients each month and encourage them to use their contact lists to drive up merchandise donations and sales. All profits benefit these organizations at the end of their month.
