Rochester, NH – HRCU has donated copies of the book “Amazing Masks” written by William Allen School 2nd Grade Teacher Jennifer Brock, to Rochester Elementary schools, as well as, local pediatric offices, dentists, daycares, and the Rochester Library.
“The goal of Amazing Masks is to help ensure that our most precious resource, our children, are as emotionally prepared as possible as they enter the upcoming school year and the new normal of wearing masks. The hope is this book will ease anxiety, create smiles and happiness, and make the return to school a little easier. We are thrilled at the support we have received from HRCU. We cannot thank them enough for supporting our communities,” stated Brock.
While donating the books to the Rochester School District, HRCU also donated Staples gift cards to be used to provide school supplies for students that may be in need.
“As the Superintendent of Schools in Rochester, I am so fortunate to have community partners like HRCU. Their support has never waned even during the pandemic and our school community is deeply appreciative of HRCU’s constant support to our students, staff and families”, said Kyle Repucci, Superintendent of Schools for SAU 54.
Todd Civin, of Civin Media Relations and Publishing Services, the publisher of Amazing Masks, also donated backpacks with supplies through the program “KushCares Children in the Community”.
“I am thrilled to find a company like HRCU to supplement what we are doing for children in Southern NH. To work with a group who has similar goals regarding children in our communities is especially exciting. We hope to partner on additional joint ventures in the future”, said Civin, who also is the Director for KushCares Children in the Community.
