Many mentees, their mentors, and family members enjoyed an absolutely beautiful evening at this year’s backpack and school supplies activity held at Arnie’s Place in Concord. New owner of Arnie’s Place, Kaitlyn Witts, hosted the Friends Youth Mentoring Program as we distributed new backpacks filled with school supplies, snacks, and trinkets and by providing delicious ice cream to the children attending. 

Very generous sponsors of our backpack project include:  Arnie’s Place, Bar Harbor Bank & Trust, Cleveland Waters, & Bass, CMG Financial, Concord Group Insurance, Dartmouth Hitchcock Clinic, GOBI Library Solutions from EBSCO, Greater Concord Federation of Women’s Club, Erin McNabb & Yehan Chen, Northeast Delta Dental, The Paul Family, Terri A. Smith, St. Paul’s School, and Weaver Brothers Construction

It was our great pleasure assuring so many children were ready with the right gear to start school. We hope each and every one has a super academic year!
