  • Student Uses Creative Solution to help our Families July 26, 2018 by Amy Freise

    Annemarie Edvalson wanted to make a difference in her community and she knew just how to do it!  Edvalson, a recent graduate of Souhegan High School, works part-time at the Gap Outlet in Merrimack.  She saw that they had lots of brand new clothes that had been deeply discounted in the clearance section.  Over time she used her employee discount to purchase these items-for adults and kids-at an even greater discount.  Then she dropped everything off to us!  These brand new clothes make terrific presents for birthdays and holidays for our kids OR they could be interview clothes for our parents.  Thank you Annemarie for thinking of us and using double-discounts to help!
