Black Bear Boutique & Maranacook Food Pantry

Screen Shot 2015-08-26 at 11.11.59 AMWe are working to help students and their families cope with unmet needs for food and clothing throughout the school year. Our aim is to provide good quality, clean used clothing, as well as basic easy-to-prepare food items (canned soups & fruit, breakfast cereals, pasta & tomato sauce), which will provide some comfort and support so that students can concentrate on their academic responsibilities.

Young people concerned with the basic issues of hunger and access to suitable clothing cannot easily address classroom activities and assigned homework. We hope to help ease their distraction a bit through giving them access to our Boutique and Pantry in order to make them comfortable and help free them to learn.

If you do know of a student who could use some help, please encourage that child to contact us. We’ll be glad to help. For clothing or food needs, please contact our school nurse, Sandy Hunter, @ 685-4923 ext. 1033.
