This Sunday, February 13th, the Friends of Northborough Recreation will be holding its first annual phone-a-thon fundraiser from 2-4 pm. 100% of the proceeds from this event will go directly to sending children to summer camp. We have been encouraged from the outreach of support this community has shown thus far, and we hope this event will help us reach our goal of sending all children who qualify to summer camp for one week. For more information about the Friends of Northborough Recreation or to make a tax deductible donation please visit our website at friendsofnorthboroughrec.org or call Stefanie Youssef at 508-393-5034. We are now able to accept both check and credit card donations.
The mission of the Friends of Northborough Recreation is to raise the needed funds to send Northborough children (K-8) of families suffering financial hardship to Northborough Recreation's summer camp. This past summer (2010), the Northborough Recreation Department had to turn away 20 families hoping to send their kids to camp. The Recreation Department does not run on town monies and is legally unable to accept direct donations to aid in this effort. The Friends of Northborough Recreation Committee would like to help ease this financial burden for these families of our community.
