Backpacks for kids

Thank you to everyone who made the 2013 Gear for Grades program such a huge success! We couldn’t have done it without you and our partners Citizens Bank, Child and Family Services of New Hampshire, the New Hampshire Union Leader and 95.7 WZID!

One hundred youth received backpacks filled with supplies that came from the Gear for Grades program initiative and the following generous donors: Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center, Concord employees; Office of Public Guardian; Northeast Delta Dental; Follett Higher Education Group and St. Paul’s School.

And finally, big thanks to Arnie’s Place for hosting our event and treating the youth to ice cream.
