Dover Children’s Home – “It Takes A Community To Raise A Child”
Dover Children’s Home – “It Takes A Community To Raise A Child”
Kingswood Leasing has been around for 26 years and over the years has been witness to natural disasters that have affected many of our partners and clients. Sympathetic to the pain and suffering that was caused by these events, Kingswood has always taken every opportunity to do more than normal to help these people get back on their feet. That experience over the years has evolved into an established commitment to these individuals:
“I am developing a Kingswood Disaster Relief Program that will support the rebuilding of businesses affected by natural disasters.” ~ Clifford Metcalfe Jr., Owner & President, Kingswood Leasing, Inc.
Businesses that have closed down have much more difficulty obtaining financing had they not had the calamity in the first place, it’s a fact of finance life. A less experienced finance professional may not take the time or know how to present a business that has experienced a natural disaster. Getting back on your feet is too important to risk. We suggest that you partner with an experienced finance professional like ourselves who can leverage over 200 years of combined financial experience to get these afflicted business owners the best terms available for their situation. Many finance companies either run away from or try to take advantage of these business owners. This finance company is running towards those in danger, and bringing to bear every available resource we can to get these business owners back on track.
If you are a business owner in need of capital following a natural disaster, or know someone who is, please see our page and application customized for this program. This application asks some additional questions about the status of the business that will be relevant for the purposes of securing capital. And please do not hesitate to contact us should you have questions. We want to do our part, tell us how we can help.
The entire staff of Kingswood Leasing was proud to support and attend our 6th consecutive Dover Children’s Home Golf Tournament. This charitable tournament is one of the largest events that the Dover Children’s Home puts on every year, generating much of the needed funding for their non-profit programs for children. Thousands of NH’s most vulnerable children have received exceptional care at DCH since 1893. Their personalized treatment allows the young people that they serve to gain self-confidence and experience significant improvement in their family relationships, decision-making skills, and school performance.
Fundraisers and donations of any kind translate into the program’s ability to provide exceptional care while attempting to provide a positive adolescent experience. DCH is committed to improving the lives of the young people placed in their care by offering a wide array of services, experiences, and opportunities that celebrate each child’s individual strengths and personal needs.
As one of only a few community-based residential treatment programs for children remaining in NH, it is more important than ever for Dover Children’s Home to provide a safe haven for young people to develop the skills they will need to become healthy, productive members of the community.
“To the Whole Team at Kingswood Leasing,
I cannot say enough Thank You’s to each and every one of you for your ongoing support of Dover Children’s Home! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all you have done and continue to do for us! Thank you for wrapping your arms so generously around us!
With much gratitude, Renee” – Renee Touhey-Childress, Executive Director, Dover Children’s Home
The staff of Kingswood Leasing had, yet again, a great time being a part of this event. Almost everyone either volunteered or played in the tournament, which was a lot of fun for everyone involved. We look forward to this event every year and we look forward to supporting the Dover Children’s Home for years to come.
Kingswood Leasing was proud to take part in the 9th Annual Dover Children’s Home Bowl-A-Thon, doing our part to raise funds for our favorite local charity. This year we were witness to another successful event where 90 teams and approximately 380 bowlers raised just under $27,000! All funds go back into providing the best quality treatment services for at risk youth at Dover Children’s Home.
“Kingswood Leasing was a huge contributor to our event, and we are absolutely thrilled with how the day turned out. Dover Children’s Home is so thankful for all of the support we have received and for everyone who helped make the day such a success!!” ~ Renee Touhey-Childress, Executive Director, Dover Children’s Home
The entire team had a great time bowling with family and friends, but everyone at Kingswood was especially proud to earn recognition as this year’s top fundraising team. An honor we have now earned in back-to-back events. We would like to recognize some of our top contributors, who we share and owe much of this honor with:
Many more donors pledged and the support was overwhelming. We cannot thank you all enough for your generosity… Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!!
Not us. Though we had a great time dressing up as Game of Thrones characters in our attempt to win best theme-wear for the event. Kingswood tips our bowling hats to the winner, Keller-Williams Reality, who won with a great ‘Where’s Waldo’ theme. Maybe it was the guy wearing the dress and blonde wig that threw off the judges?
However, not to be outdone, the Kingpins did take home one more illustrious honor… top score for our session! Looks like Daenerys will have to add one more title to her list of names… Daenerys Stormborn of the House Targaryen, the First of Her Name, Queen of Meereen, The Unburnt, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Protector of the Realm, Queen of the Andals, the Rhoynar and the First Men, Lady Regnant of the Seven Kingdoms, Mother of Dragons, Breaker of Chains… and now the Strike Queen??
Kingswood Leasing is a proud supporter of the Dover Children’s Home. For the past 5 years Kingswood has participated in the DCH Golf Tournament, played at the Links at Outlook in Berwick, Maine. The tournament helps raise funding and awareness for the DCH and their mission to enrich the lives of adolescents and families through the highest quality services and programs. It is a great opportunity for community members to come together to support a great cause, and have a great time while doing it.
The 2016 Dover Children’s Home Golf Tournament was a huge success. There were 96 golfers and 15 volunteers that contributed their time to participate in the event and who helped DCH achieve their goals for the tournament. Kingswood was represented by 9 golfers and 2 volunteers.
With such an incredibly generous community surrounding us, we were able to blow our goal of $23,500 out of the water this year at the 9th Annual Dover Children’s Home Golf Tournament! On behalf of the children, staff and board of directors, I would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank everyone at Kingswood Leasing for your incredible support in all of our events! We could not have been so successful this year if it wasn’t for all of you!! – Renee Touhey-Childress, Executive Director, Dover Children’s Home
Thank you, Renee! We had a great time and look forward to next year!
