Worth Repeating closed, but still giving back to the community

Although Worth Repeating’s doors are shut forever, the organization is still giving back to the community. The organization has always given grants to local organizations from the money raised at their upscale re-sale shop.

The board donated more than $34,000 in May, an additional $13,000 in June and have pledged $10,000 in two $5,000 scholarships to 2017 graduating seniors. Eighteen grants were awarded in May, including grants for two years of the Manchester Library’s summer reading program and three new iPads,  a commercial freezer for the Community Resource Center’s food pantry, funding for the next three years of college visits for Manchester High School, special ed equipment and classroom robotic kits for Klager Elementary, and much more.

In June, four grants were awarded which included a CNC router for the high school, the STEM program for the Middle School, and a grant toward the re-payment of the Leader-in-Me Program loan at Klager Elementary.

Now that the re-sale store is closed and their fixtures sold at auction, Worth Repeating’s board will be dissolved, but not before they give out additional thousands of dollars of grants this summer!
