To The Daily Sun,
On April 21, Belknap House staff attended an assembly at Pleasant Street School. As part of the school's Pride Week, Belknap House was chosen to be a recipient of the student's Community Give Back , and they chose to help outfit our cold weather family shelter with donated paper good items. After we arrived and were introduced, the curtain in the gym was drawn, displaying over 870 items gathered by the students.
Overwhelmed by their energy and generosity, we thanked the students for thinking of us and the families we help to support. As an aside it was also the day of birth for our Executive Director Karen Welford and everyone sang Happy Birthday to her, which moved her tremendously — making it such a terrific day all the way around.
We would like to publicly give thanks to Pleasant Street School Principal Dave Levesque, the teachers, students and of course their parents for making this very thoughtful donation to us. Thank you.
Tammy L. Emery
