Thanks Walgreens

walgreens-conistonWalgreeens in West Lebanon, NH helped to run a national YMCA Campaign to support their local Y—Camp Coniston. They were able to raise over $2,000 in support of our annual fund. We met with Store Manager, Dustin Aldrich of Sunapee, NH, and spoke with him about the various camp programs we offer. We also explained how Coniston sends over 30 kids from the Lebanon and West Lebanon area to Camp on full Campership every year. In addition, we support the community by proving after school care at the Hanover Street School and Mt Lebanon School. YMCA Camp Coniston extends our appreciation to Walgreens — thanks for helping us to build great kids!
