Jump Starting Smart Starts

At last count, the Smart Starts Program was showing a 40% increase in families registered for assistance. And no, unfortunately there hasn’t been a 40% increase in support. There isn’t much time left, but there are lots of opportunities. There are still drop boxes in place and those intending to watch the Homecoming Parade (August 7th) can drop off donations at the Penquis Table that will be located near Shiretown Pizza on East Main Street. While there you’ll find lots of baked goods and food items for sale including a limited supply of Al’s Pizza “Peoples’ Choice” award-winning whoopee pies. 100% of the proceeds benefits the Smart Starts for students Fund.

Thanks to those Granges and Grangers who have helped with this program so far. Can we do a little more for our great kids and future community leaders? More information about the program is available from this post or go directly to the Penquis Site.
