BNN’s Manchester office pitched in to buy full turkey dinners for needy families found by the Boys & Girls Club, and before Christmas time, “adopted” as many families as possible, and bought them everything on their Christmas lists and then some, including all the shopping and wrapping of gifts. Jacqueline Lynch had this to say, “Sponsoring families of the Manchester Boys and Girls club is an incredibly rewarding experience. Not only were we able to provide 8 families with a warm fulfilling meal on Thanksgiving day, that they likely would otherwise not have, but we were also able to provide 2 families (10 total individuals) with a reason to celebrate on Christmas morning. Having worked with kids of the club in the past, it is so nice to know we’re able to make their holidays brighter. Thanks to the help of many Manchester colleagues, we shopped for 8 thanksgiving meals, purchased tons of Christmas gifts, and even wrapped the gifts in festive paper to greet them on Christmas morning!”

BNN held a book sale to support The United Way and generated $150 to our annual campaign. BNN employees donated books for the sale and then in turn shopped for books. “This was a great way to help the United Way and also clean out old books and pick up reading for the upcoming year,” said Jennifer Stewart.
