We Cannot Wait to Help

What if I told you that there are families in our very own community who need our help this season? Would you want to help? We have families around us experiencing financial difficulties and have fallen on hard times right now.
     Many have school age children and are struggling to provide everything they need. You along with the Groton Community Children’s Fund can help these families in need and as a community, we can really make a difference in so many lives.
     This month the Groton-Dunstable Middle School is participating in our eighteenth year with Project Mitten. Project Mitten is a school-wide project that donates all its proceeds directly to the Groton Community Children’s Fund, and benefits families living in Groton and Dunstable, families we are surrounded by every day, our fellow students, our friends, families we see and may not even know are struggling. Last year we were able to raise $9,000 and we look forward to helping even more this year.
     Each grade level at the Groton-Dunstable Middle School participates in a fundraiser of their own to show their support and donate to a cause that is changing the dynamic of their community. Take some time to check in with your student to find out how you can participate and donate. There are no words to express how thankful our student body is for each individual who reaches out a helping hand. You are someone’s hero, and a very important part of many families’ lives this season. By donating
even one item, you will change someone’s life.
     Project Mitten has helped so many families over the years. If you are interested in donating and don’t have a middle schooler to ask how, here is another way to get more information. Contact Karen Tuomi at 978-877-6787 or visit the Trust Funds office located at GDRMS-South.
     This also is a great way to let us know if you are a family with school-aged children and are experiencing financial difficulties this year. Confidentiality is strictly maintained. Items such as gifts, food, and winter clothing would be provided in a discreet manner.
     Whether you are looking to experience the joy of giving or the need for receiving, we can’t wait to help.
