CONCORD — Officers and members of American Legion Auxiliary Unit 21 presented a check for $1,000 to Friends of Forgotten Children late last month to further the organization’s work with local families and seniors.
Tom Rochette, board chairman of Friends of Forgotten Children, accepted the check from Charlene Mayo, president of Unit 21 in Concord. The donation resulted from a fundraiser held by Unit 21 in June to honor the memory of former Auxiliary President Jodi Robinson, who died on Christmas night after a long battle with cancer. One of Jodi’s favorite charities was Friends of Forgotten Children, which is based in Concord and provides food, clothing and other necessities to 250 families in the Concord area.
Auxiliary officers Jessica Weeks, Brenda Audet, Louise Brackett and Suzanne Isabelle, and junior member Sophia Weeks, joined in the presentation.
