Youth and Education

We believe that every student should have access to education that prepares them to succeed in school and life. We believe that investing in education creates a foundation for a better future for all of us. We support programs that encourage a child’s success in a safe environment and that foster learning in all subjects, including after-school activities as well as other interventions.

Our funding is specifically for K-12 education in schools and in out-of-school organizations that increase test scores, classroom performance and/or attendance.

We Love Our Schools

Investing in the education of students throughout New England creates a foundation for a better future for all of us.

This August and September, we kicked off our annual “We Love Our Schools” campaign. In keeping with our tradition dating back more than 150 years of serving our New England communities, all of our 154 New England stores adopted two area schools, each of which received a $400 donation. Over 300 schools received donations totaling $123,200 back to students.

Where We Give

We focus on giving locally to help strengthen neighborhoods and change lives.
