Donate to Operation Christmas Child

Southwestern N.H. will have drop-off sites for donations for Operation Christmas Child from Nov. 13 to 20. The project’s national collection week will have sites accepting school supplies, hygiene products, and toys for children. This year’s goal is to have 25,000 shoe box gifts for children in need. There will be six sites around the area, two of which are in Concord.

PembrokeCheerleaders raise money for cancer

The “Pembroke Spartans 1 and 2” cheerleading teams are participating in the annual Cheer for Dana-Farber fundraiser, supporting patient care and cancer research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston. Cheer for Dana-Farber is an annual fundraising program that grants New England cheerleading programs – including Pop Warner, middle and high school teams, as well as all-star teams – the opportunity to show their team spirit and support the fight against cancer at Dana-Farber. Participating Cheer for Dana-Farber teams fundraise in their local communities through car washes, bake sales, canister collections, and similar activities. The cheerleaders will fundraise through November. Each team that raises $1,000 or more will be entered to win the grand prize: a chance to perform a cheer routine prior to a New England Patriots home game.
