The Baker Newman Noyes (BNN) Manchester office adopted five families from the Manchester Boys and Girls Club and provided them with gifts from their wish list for Christmas. The office was able to raise more than $2,000 for the initiative.
BNN Manager Jacqueline Lynch has led this effort for the past four years. “I have been involved with the club for 15 years and every time I walk through their doors, I’m overwhelmed with the powerful work that they do,” says Lynch. “I am so overjoyed that we are able to do a small part in helping these five families. I am also thankful for the generosity of the individuals at BNN who helped me make these families’ Christmas wishes come true.”
The Manchester Boys and Girls Club is a part of the New Hampshire Alliance of Boys and Girls Clubs. It serves the state’s youth, ages 6-18, by providing high quality programs and activities in five core areas: character and leadership development; education and career development; health and life skills; the arts; and sports, fitness, and education. BNN Principal Jeff Wheeler is a board member for the organization.

“When cancer strikes, the whole family is affected. The best we can do is help alleviate the stress and anxiety of the holidays will a little Christmas magic,” says Lisa Varela, BNN charitable coordinator. “Our team is filled with charitable hearts and we are so thankful for the opportunity to share with those in need of some cheer.”
