Even the youngest Nantucketers are helping to build the island’s new hospital! Nantucket Cottage Hospital’s “Little Builders” are pitching in to help us raise awareness and funds for this historic project. Every child who becomes a “Little Builder” receives a toolbox with a t-shirt, hardhat, hospital ID card, and tools to help us break ground on the new hospital!

If you were not able to attend our kickoff event on June 28th, stop by the Nantucket Cottage Hospital Foundation during business hours to pick up your kid’s toolbox, or call us any time to learn more at 508-825-8250.  (more…)
