|Fidelity Bank makes $10K gift to Boys & Girls Club of Fitchburg & Leominster|
The grant is part of Fidelity’s commitment to increasing its support of local nonprofits in the communities of Gardner and Winchendon.
“The grant will help with purchasing STEAM program supplies, financial literacy, healthy nutrition and cooking program supplies as well as books for our reading club. It will also provide transportation for field trips to STEM and STEAM focused companies, labs, schools, and exhibits,” said Donata Martin, Executive Director of The Boys & Girls Club of Fitchburg and Leominster.
The funding was approved by the Colonial Advisory Board, which was created as part of the merger to approve the distribution of funds to local nonprofits.
The grant will be used to support the Boys & Girls Club Gardner Clubhouse.
The organization is hoping to move the Gardner program to a permanent home at the Waterford Street School in the next two to three years.
The school building will be available once a new elementary school is built with the help of state funding.
Organizers raised more than $53,000 dollars towards that effort at its annual fundraiser held at the Colonial Hotel in Gardner on November 15.
