HPM Insurance is pleased to partner with SHARE Outreach of Milford and the Boys & Girls Club of the Lakes Region for the 7th annual HPM Insurance School Supply Drive.  Donations will be accepted from employees, carrier partners, clients and the public now through August 9th at all office locations.

  • Amherst: 101 Ponemah Road
  • Bedford: 3 Bedford Farms Drive #306
  • Bristol: 800 Lake Street
  • Franconia: 303 Main Street
  • Laconia: 208 Union Avenue

Donations can be accepted during office hours of 8:00 am - 5:00 pm.  All donated items should be new and appropriate for either a boy or girl between kindergarten and high school. 

According to Christine Janson, the executive director of SHARE, items that are in need include rulers, filler-paper, erasers, flash-drives, durable 2-pocket folders, boxes of tissues, glue sticks, pens, pencils, pencil sharpeners, lunch boxes, book covers, calculators, crayons, markers, highlighters, notebooks, pencil boxes, erasers and tape.

To help jump start the backpack and school supply drive, HPM Insurance purchased 20 backpacks for the employees to voluntarily fill.  Employees always enjoy this drive because according to April McBriarty-Weismann, vice president of business development and communications, everyone remembers the stress of being a kid and fitting in.  "If we can help students get the supplies they need, that is one less thing they have to worry about," Weismann said. "It makes everyone feel good."

SHARE Outreach is an organization located in Milford, NH that provides food, clothing and emergency financial assistance to area families in need.  SHARE collaborates with other organizations to provide access to services and information with the goal to promote self-reliance while maintaining the dignity of their clients.

The Boys & Girls Club of the Lakes Region has the mission to inspire and enable all young people to reach their full potential as productive, caring and responsible citizens.  

Please help us reach our goal and help a local child start the school year off strong.
