Congratulations to all our outstanding 2022 awardees from the PAL's Night of Champions presented by the Giaquinto Family! Please read more about each of them at nashuapal.com/2022champions.

Thank you to CKC Photography for capturing this moment with all of our awardees. Nashua Police Department officers, and Hillsborough County NH Sheriff's Office!

Thank you to everyone that joined us, sponsored, supported, and helped us congratulate outstanding PAL youth and volunteers! It was a special night in Nashua under the stadium lights ✨️✨️ 

Because of your support, Nashua PAL was able to meet the $50,000 match from a generous anonymous donor!! THANK YOU for supporting PAL youth!

Beaver Brook Camping Trip!

Beaver Brook and their awesome donors provided hiking packs which contained, sleep mats, water bottles first aid kits and a sleeping bag. All of which they get to keep for future trips!

This was the 1st time camping for many PAL kids and was a very special mentoring experience with mentors from Beaver Brook, Nashua Police Department, Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office, and AmeriCorps.

We took a nature walk to hear animals at night, learned how to set up tents, and learned about how to safely use the fire to cook dinner (and s’mores of course). It’s these seemingly simple things that make Nashua PAL's inner city youth programs unique. Thank you, Beaver Brook, for this incredible and invaluable experience. We are all grateful for what you have given us.

PAL Teen Leaders Update

What have our #PALTeenLeaders been up to lately? We are so glad you asked!! 😃

The PAL Teen Mentoring group went to the Hunt Community for an ice cream social, and had a great time! PAL youth used their #origami questions to get to know the Hunt Community seniors. Some were blown away with how much they had in common! The community members gave the PAL youth great advice and invited us back.

Thanks so much for hosting us, Hunt Community!
