Every year it starts around Thanksgiving and picks up momentum over the first couple weeks of December. Gifts for needy local youngsters - they just keep rolling in. The presents are donated by local individuals and businesses to be distributed to kids in the Youth Mentoring Program.
"For some kids in the program, these might be the only presents they get," said Youth Mentoring Director Terri Smith.
The Friends thanks the many individual donors who contributed, as well as the following organizations: Affiliates in Podiatry, Bow Memorial School, Cobb Hill Construction Inc., Dartmouth-Hitchcock Concord Primary Care, The Fairfield Inn, HealthSouth Rehabilitation Hospital, The McLane Law Firm, NH Bar Association, Sanborn, Head, & Associates, Upton & Hatfield LLP, Warner Men's Club, Wilson Employment Networks.
