HPM Insurance is happy to support SHARE Outreach of Milford with their annual school supply drive. Donations of supplies will be accepted through Monday August 7th from employees, carrier partners, clients and the public at both Amherst and Bedford locations. The school supply items most in need include: New backpacks (large enough for snow gear and school supplies and sturdy enough to last the school year.) 2-pocket folders Binders (1, 2 and 3 inch) Filler paper and dividers Flash drives Calculators Notebooks Pens (blue, red and black) and pencils Pencil cases (both hard and soft) Dry-erase markers Post-it Notes Highlighters Crayons, markers and colored pencils Erasers (pencil top and chunk) Glue sticks and tape Rulers Anti-bacterial wipes and tissues President and CEO of HPM Insurance, Lyle Fulkerson, supports the SHARE school supply drive because he believes it is critical for all students to start the school year on the right foot. "Starting school for most children is stressful enough," Fulkerson said. "If you add on the financial pressure of having to purchase school supplies it can be overwhelming for many families. We just hope to lessen this stress so all students can start the school year off right." HPM Insurance decided to partner with SHARE Outreach as it is an organization that provides access to food, clothing and emergency financial assistance to area families who are in need. This is the agency's 4th school supply drive with 1000s of items being collected and donated over the years. We would love to beat last year's donations so please feel free to drop new items off at either our Amherst or Bedford offices between 8:00 am and 5:00 pm Monday - Friday.
