To the editor:
On behalf of executive director Deborah Smith and the Board of Directors of The Pettengill House, Inc., we would like to extend our sincere thanks to the following middle school-aged girls who donated over $1,000 to us in addition to food items! Allie Labrecque, Alyssa Mangini, Catherine Hussey, Gemma Leary, Madison Sanchez and Sydney Aldrich threw a joint birthday party fundraiser at The Polish Club in Amesbury. Instead of gifts, approximately 60 guests were asked to bring food or cash donations all to benefit The Pettengill House. They are a wonderful example of how youth can get involved to make a big difference locally. Thank you to these girls, their families and guests for making this birthday celebration a huge success!
