NEF awarded over $26,000 in funds to 15 grant recipients during a special ceremony held at the Northborough Free Library on Sept. 15.
Superintendent of Schools Christine Johnson thanked NEF and noted her appreciation for teachers and staff who went the extra mile to seize the opportunity to write and submit a grant and to continue to put the kids first.
NEF President Marile Borden communicated her thanks to NEF’s corporate sponsors as well as to the community and schools who have supported the numerous fundraisers throughout the year including the Golden Apple Appreciation Awards, Trivia Night, Mother/Daughter Princess Tea, Northborough Local First Ladies Night Out, and the Applefest Gala. This support enabled NEF to approve to fully or partially fund 15 grants.
