LUCY FOWLKES BREED FAMILY SERVICE VOLUNTEER AWARD
This fall, New Hampshire Children’s Trust will award the Lucy Fowlkes Breed Family Service Volunteer Award! Candidates will have volunteered in direct service to families at a New Hampshire nonprofit that serves children or families. Volunteer work must have been done within the past two years. A virtual celebration will take place and a monetary award will be presented.
Lucy, knowing there was a need in the community, founded and was the volunteer facilitator of the “New Moms” group at the Children’s Place and Parent Education Center—a family resource center in Concord.
Mothers who had previously experienced isolation now had a network of friends with babies. Lucy was not only a vast resource about infant development, but she was so nurturing to the mothers in the group, sometimes staying afterward to provide one-on-one encouragement to a new mother.
Lucy also served as a founding trustee on the board of New Hampshire Children's Trust, dedicating fourteen years as a board member, eight of those years as board chair. Lucy exemplified volunteerism—it was so near to her heart. Upon her retirement, New Hampshire Children's Trust set up the Lucy Fowlkes Breed Legacy Fund and created this award in her honor.
