Girltopia!

Warmth from the Millyard will be attending the Girl Scouts of the Green & White Mountains Girltopia expo!  Saturday, February 25th at the Carr Center on the campus of St. Anselm College.  The expo celebrates 100 years of Girl Scouting as they explore the world around them! Explore interactive exhibits, participate at the improv stage, check out our raffle items, visit our 100th Store, shop at our camp merchandise clearance sale, and have fun at the photo booth. Visit the Girl Scout Museum and travel through the last 100 years of Girl Scouting.

Warmth from the Millyard will have a booth set up at the expo and will be speaking to Girl Scouts and their troop leaders about how to get involved in our clothing drive campaigns.  We will have activities for the girls and they will receive a Girltopia Expo 2012 patch if they bring in two of the following items for Warmth from the Millyard:  socks, hats, or mittens!

Thank You to the NH Lions Club!

Kate attended the NH Lions Club Convention to give the leaders certificates from the Warmth from the Millyard project in recognition of the amazing work the group did for us this winter.  In all, the NH Lions Club donated over 13,000 hats, gloves and mittens to dozens of local agencies throughout New Hampshire as part of their collaboration with the Warmth from the Millyard Project.  This is the second year they’ve worked with us and we are truly thrilled to have them as partners.

Hats off to the Maple Ave School Student Council!

These are pictures of the students in the Student Council at Maple Avenue School in Goffstown with teacher Deborah Prive and Principal Suzanne Pyszka.  Because of their great work, they were able to donate almost 300 pairs of brand new pajamas to Child and Family Services of New Hampshire.  The staff there were absolutely thrilled to receive these pajamas and started providing them to families immediately.  This is the third year in a row that the Maple Avenue Student Council has participated in the Warmth from the Millyard project!  What terrific partners they are!
