The early August weekend marks the conclusion of the yearly “Pack a Pack” fundraiser for underprivileged kids in New Hampshire. This is the sixth annual charity campaign event to get students ready for the school year and let them know their community has got their back. The objective is to give 3,000 kids in New Hampshire backpacks full of school essentials. Goods donated can range from pencils, erasers, and glue sticks to notebooks and anything deemed vital to get the school year started off right. 

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Central New Hampshire will distribute them. In addition, the New Hampshire Food Bank will include a package of wholesome snacks in the backpacks. There are many in our community in need of aid. Let’s show them our support this year and for many years to come. 

Please visit https://www.nhyouth.org/ to help donate!
Donors can also order products from the Amazon or Walmart wish lists online. Those products will be delivered to the Boys & Girls Club in Concord.
