About 20 members of the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program of Southern New Hampshire Services organized and packed thousands of school supplies that will be distributed to Nashua students today.
To keep students at the top of their game, members of the Greater Nashua Chamber of Commerce contributed funds and supplies to make tonight’s 11th annual Nashua Goes Back to School event a success.
Alderwoman Mary Ann Melizzi-Golja said it is often difficult for some city families to purchase basic school supplies each August.
