A generous community donates 20 rocking chairs

To the editor:

The Newburyport Community continues to amaze us with their generosity and thoughtfulness. Thank you too all those who donated to the Nock Middle Schools Rocking Chair Drive. In all we received 20 beautiful, wooden rocking chairs to be used throughout the building to support students in the classrooms. The rocking chairs naturally provide movement and calming breaks for students with a variety of attention and learning needs.

We’d like to thank the following organizations and individuals for their generosity: Amesbury Chair Company, Newburyport Lions Club, Kathy Carey, The Lambert Family, the Blackburn Family, The Goff Family, Linda Michals, Beverly Heinz-Lacey, Christine Johnson and Family, Adriane Deorocki and several anonymous donors. Both students and staff have commented on the benefits of the chairs. We so appreciate your support!
