Help Build Phase 2 of the Playground!

A big thank you to these two kiddos! Chip Bergeron (assisted by his little sister Agnes in the photo) held a lemonade stand in September 2019 to raise money for the Playground Fund. Chip donated $75.76 towards Phase 2 of the Humiston Park Playground project. We are so proud of Chip and Agnes for having such big hearts and giving back to their community. Together we can build it!

 
 
 
 
Donations may be sent to: Town of Jaffrey, 10 Goodnow Street, Jaffrey, NH 03452
Please help us reach our goal of $40,000 to build phase 2 of the new playground. With a population of 5500 people in the Town of Jaffrey, a donation of $7.28 per person would exceed our goal.
