Bank of New Hampshire Supports the Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains

Bedford, New Hampshire – February 8, 2016 – Bank of New Hampshire is a proud supporter of the Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains and has made a recent donation in the amount of $6,000 to support both the Annual ToGetHerThere Luncheon and scholarships for girls to attend camp. The luncheon will be held on Tuesday, May 3rd from 11 am to 1 pm at the Grappone Conference Center in Concord.

“Having the support of the Bank of New Hampshire at the ToGetHerThere Luncheon will make an immediate and measurable impact on their ability to reach girls across the state with quality programming,” said Patricia K. Mellor, Chief Executive Officer for the Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains. “With growing demand for quality youth programming, combined with additional strain on available volunteer time from parents, it is critical we raise the funds necessary to support girls from all backgrounds and ensure they have access to the life-changing programs we offer. We are excited and honored to have strong community partners like Bank of New Hampshire.”

The Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains serve more than 10,500 girls throughout New Hampshire and Vermont. With the guidance of more than 4,000 dedicated and trained volunteers, girls discover the fun, friendship, and power of girls together. Through hundreds of programs offered each year, girls develop their leadership potential through activities that enable them to discover their values, skills and the world; connect with others in a multicultural environment; and take action to make a difference in the world.

The ToGetHerThere Luncheon is the Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains signature fundraising event. The funds that are raised at this event support programing such as STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics), financial literacy and money management, healthy living, “Girls Rock” the capitol legislative internship, environmental studies and financial aid for membership fees, books and materials, uniforms and camperships for those in need. No girl is ever turned away from the Girl Scouts because of lack of finances.  

“The education that the Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains provide is vital to our youth and community,” stated Donna Guimond, AVP – Bedford Office Manager for Bank of New Hampshire. “We are proud to support the mission and vision of their future.”
