Nashua Elk's Distinguished Citizen of the Year - Miss Jenn!

PAL Teen Leaders Update

The PAL Teen Leaders group has been busy this past month! We dropped off the care packages for Stepping Stones for youth battling homelessness, and had a great conversation with Nashua Division of Public Health & Community Services about identity.

📢 Read on for more details! 📢

The PAL teens were impressed by Stepping Stones' room filled with donations, and learned that when individuals served by Stepping Stones get an apartment, they can pick out essentials like plates, forks, cups, bedding, etc. right from Kathy for FREE.

For the Identity chat with Public Health, PAL teens thought about who they are and what makes them "them". They also talked about how to be allies for each other, especially those of another race, ability, or in the LGBTQIA+ community.

The teens said in order to support each other they need to:

  • Try new things
  • Be respectful
  • Donate to a charity of cause
  • Walk or do a fundraiser for support
  • Provide food, drinks, and support the way PAL supports people
  • Spread words of kindness
  • Become more educated on the topic

Fabulous February Vacation

Connecting Cops and Kids In Positive Activities

Thanks so much to Hudson K-9 Training Center for the demonstration and fun!

All the doggos helped make a few of the PAL kids a little more comfortable around k-9 friends, & Nashua PAL Police Officer Ben was only a *little* sore from the demonstration with the highly trained dogs 🐕🦺👮‍♂️
