The Nathaniel B. Field Memorial Foundation, Inc. wants to give a huge thank you to all the students, staff, local businesses and community members that made this years’ Haddam-Killingworth High School Holiday Telethon a tremendous success! We would especially like to thank Mrs. Kasha Topa-Finberg, Patrick Boots and Katja Beradino, co-producers of the show, Valley Shore Community Television, Inc, and all the students and staff involved with this fantastic broadcasting production! The performances were very entertaining, showcasing the creative talent in our schools. We would also like to recognize the Class of 2016 for well surpassing the $2016 challenge created by Nathan’s classmate, China. We are overwhelmed and very much appreciative of the generous support from our local community members. As we mentioned during the show, we welcome suggestions for initiatives that we can participate in and support.

The mission of the Nathaniel B. Field Memorial Foundation, Inc. is to prevent suicide through public awareness and education, to reduce the stigma of mental illness, and to provide hope and support. To reach us for any reason, feel free to email us at or send us a message via our webpage

Have a safe, healthy and happy New Year!

Marie and Howie Field
