School offers residents chance to ‘give once, help twice’

Westborough – Westborough High School's (WHS) Fine Arts Department is off ering a holiday giving program under which residents can make charitable donations that will benefit local organizations and help students whose families need assistance paying for department-sponsored trips.

The WHS Fine Arts Gift Card Program lets residents make donations to one or more of the following organizations: the Westborough Food Pantry, the Bridge of Central Massachusetts, and Westborough Youth and Family Services. Donations are used to buy gift cards from local retailers selected by the organizations, which will use the gift cards to purchase supplies for their clients.

The value of the cards will equal the money donated. As a bonus, participating retailers will give the Fine Arts Department a percentage above the cost of the cards, which will be used to help provide qualifying students with scholarships to defray the cost of school-approved travel.

Donation forms are available in the Fine Arts section of the Westborough Public Schools Web site. Completed forms can be dropped off at the High School or mailed.

For more information, call Laurie Nordman at 508-870-9978.
