102 Coastside Teachers Supported by 64 Donators!

The HMB Coastside Chamber is so excited to announce that 102 Coastside teachers were supported by 64 local businesses and residents with $12,750 in donations!

Each year the Chamber organizes an event of giving to provide supplies for the teachers. In a typical year, Hassett ACE Hardware donates $2,500 in supplies for the teachers to "shop" at the event as well as local businesses donating $10,000 in one-hundred-dollar bills directly to the teachers for them to purchase additional classroom supplies.

Due to the pandemic, we had to switch things up a bit and Hassett ACE Hardware graciously donated $2,550 in gift cards while businesses continued with their $100 bill donations. We held an in-person, distanced event hosted by Jettywave Distillery for those who felt comfortable to do so, and the rest was handled online and through Chamber office coordination.

We are so appreciative to the 64 businesses and people who donated to the teachers! Truly awesome and so wonderful!
