MILFORD – Members of the Milford school district nursing department dedicated themselves to picking up roadside trash on May 28 and in doing so, raised $2962 in pledges from local residents who ‘bought a bag’ – 46 of them in fact. And as of Jun. 9, assistant to the school nurse Sandy Lafleur said, “While there are a few pledges still to be returned, today I am delivering 50 checks totaling $2,962 to SHARE in Milford. I expect the final total will be in excess of $3,000.”
Pledges ranged from one to ten dollars a bag, with many flat donations of varying amounts. SHARE has agreed to prioritize the use of these funds for purchasing local/NH agricultural products for distribution to folks in need in their service area.
“Besides wanting cleaner roads and people fed in our community, we wish to support our New Hampshire farmers,” Lafleur said.
Another project that MHS nurse, Diana Zoltko and Lafleur will be working on this summer, is the publication of a “How To” manual ‚– “How to raise money for a good cause with Trash!” Stay tuned for more details.
