March 30, 2018 – Brewster’s Random Acts of Kindness Club (RAK) presented $1,000 to the Kingswood Youth Center at an all-school assembly.

This is RAK’s second sizeable donation of the year and second major donation to a local organization serving the local community. RAK members raised the money from their Valentine’s Day fundraiser.

In December RAK donated $1000 to Families in Transition’s Hope House, scheduled to open later this spring in Wolfeboro.

Wolfeboro police officer Peter Llewellyn, who is the Governor Wentworth School District resource officer and a member of the Kingswood Youth Center Board of Directors, accepted the check on behalf of the Center.

During the assembly, the top 10 community service students (service completed during this school year cumulative through the winter trimester) were recognized with a “crown” and presented gift bags with treats and gift cards for their efforts. The students (and their hours) are Anya Found (96), Momoka Fujishima (70), DuiDui Yue (67), Abbigayle DiVigglio (47), Hailey Buffington (47), Michelle Su (44), Olivia Papp (38), Monica Zhang (37), Sage Cordy (36), and Brianna Brown (34)

Also at the assembly a Special Olympian athlete spoke on behalf of Special Olympians New Hampshire (SONH) and what the experience has meant to her. She shared her gratitude for the support of those involved with unified sports and also of being selected to represent New Hampshire at the USA games in Seattle this summer.

The Brewster Best Buddies Club plans to raise enough monies to sponsor an SONH athlete for the summer games with a school dance (DJ’d by an SONH athlete who is a DJ) as well as through small donations from students and faculty and staff.
