Today we were presented with this beautiful and much appreciated plaque for our donations of stone dust to the Andrew McCann Scholarship foundation. The Andrew McCann scholarship foundation has received over 80 loads of stone dust to replace and repair the ball fields in New Bedford. Andrew McCann Scholarship Foundation is committed to help the youths in the City of New Bedford have a fun, safe place to go to stay off the streets and provide financial assistance to those families with at risk youths who are in need.
Today marks the first day for the May donation collections! The collection period for this month’s charity will be from today, Tuesday, May 3rd, 2016 until Tuesday, May 31st, 2016.
Both the Lunenburg/Dracut area and the Acushnet/Cranston area will be supporting the Global Learning Charter Public School (GLCPS) out of New Bedford, MA. GLCPS currently has 504 students enrolled from grades 5-12 and is in the process of attaining the school’s first ever library, the Baker Korn Library. The school is dependent on staff and community support to help get them up and running. GLCPS is accepting donations in several different forms: book donations, monetary donations, or through their Savers Donation Drive. The charity’s Savers Donation Drive will be collecting gently used clothes, shoes, jewelry, handbags, linens, and accessories and will receive a monetary compensation to purchase books to supply the school’s library based off of the total pounds of items donated. This month’s charity is a great way to give back while doing some spring cleaning! Any and all gently used items listed below are greatly appreciated and will help give students the opportunity and access to new reading materials and resources. For additional information or questions regarding this charity, please contact us or the charity directly via Heather Berkley: HBerkley@glcps.org.
