Teachers and principals from five elementary schools were able to "shop" for school supplies, thanks to the generous donation of a local charitable organization. The Manchester Police Department Community Policing Division and the Manchester Health Department teamed up with Finders Keepers of Exeter, NH, to provide free school supplies to Manchester’s school teachers. This effort will offset some of the expenses necessary to ensure students and classrooms have the supplies they need for a successful school year.
“Finders Keepers believes in helping others, and being involved in community outreach,” said Laura Barker, a volunteer at Finders Keepers.
Police officers delivered the supplies to Bakersville Elementary School, where representatives from all five schools gathers to choose items for their classrooms. The donations included packages of pens and markers, paper, notebooks, erasers, glue sticks, binders and pencil cases.
