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 & Family Services of NH, NH 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.
FRIENDS PROGRAM "GEAR FOR GRADES" TONIGHT
Arnie's Place, 164 Loudon Road, Concord
Calling all of our Youth Mentees...a.k.a. "Junior Friends". You are cordially invited to Arnie’s Place to receive a free Gear for Grades back pack with school supplies in it, tonight, Friday, August 23rd 4-6PM. We have 100 back packs to provide to our Junior Friends ONLY. First Come, First Serve. We will not reserve packs in advance; you must come to the event to pick one up. All participants will also be asked to consider writing a letter, note, or drawing a picture for those serving in the U.S. military for “Operation Appreciation”. OOPS, one last thing we almost forgot, you also get a FREE ICE CREAM when you pick up your pack :-)
