Sun Santa Themed Raffle Baskets

Sun Santa 2020 masthead

Each year, Lowell General Hospital has a strong history of supporting the Lowell Sun Santa Fund, which provides meals and toys for families in need during the holiday season. This fund, started by The Sun in 1988, distributes the money to families in need in our community though gifts and food vouchers with the help of The Salvation Army and Community Teamwork, Inc.

Lowell General Hospital’s 18th annual Sun Santa Raffle drawing was another big success, with more than 2,400 people going online to buy their tickets and take a chance on incredible gift baskets put together by departments across the hospital. This year’s prizes that included cash, lottery tickets, gift cards and even a 75-inch television.

The money raised through entries and the hospital’s annual matching contribution totaled more than $80,000 for Sun Santa Charities, which supports families in need at Christmastime.
