LACONIA — Bank of New Hampshire is proud to support New Beginnings of Belknap County by hosting an employee jeans day. By donating $5 to New Beginnings, each donating employee could wear jeans to work on the designated Friday.
A total of $900 was raised by employees and the bank's match. These funds will be used to provide free and confidential services to people whose lives have been affected by domestic and sexual violence and stalking as well to present educational programs to help break the cycle of violence.
New Beginnings provides direct services in Belknap County, including short-term refuge and a supportive place for sexual assault survivors, battered women and their children. In addition, they educate survivors about the choices they have and to educate the community about the history, causes, and methods of confronting violence against women, including physical, emotional and sexual assault, thereby promoting change.
