NORTHFIELD — Spaulding Youth Center recently received two donations totaling $11,000 from the Greater Lakes Region Children's Auction.
The first donation of $5,000 will be used to support the Center's residential program, including clothing, toiletries and holiday gifts for residential students. The second donation of $6,000 will help fund enrichment programs, such as karate lessons, art classes, and field trips.
“We are honored to accept this donation from the Greater Lakes Region Children’s Auction,” said Susan C. Ryan, CEO & President of Spaulding Youth Center. “Spaulding is deeply appreciative to be included amongst many well-respected organizations working diligently to serve children and youth. This generous donation will help us to continue providing the children we serve with clothing and toys, when many come to us without either. It also provides the opportunity to build important social skills and participate in fun, memorable events every child should experience during childhood.”
Local companies support the Greater Lakes Region Children's Auction by providing cash donations, sponsorships, and staff, allowing employees to serve the community at the event during what would normally be work hours. Spaulding Youth Center is proud to be a chosen recipient of the generous donations made by many contributing local New Hampshire businesses.
