On March 18, 2015, Attachments held a Pot O’Gold Party during their hours of operation. Ten percent (10%) of the gross proceeds made that day were donated to Hunterdon Prevention Resources (HPR). The money received will be used toward prevention programs which HPR offers to the Hunterdon community. HPR provides the following programs and services:
- Prevention education to youth on substance use/abuse and life skills
- Parenting education programs that are focused on both parents and youth
- LEAP, “Law Enforcement Adolescent Program,” an early intervention program for at-risk youth
- Batterer’s Intervention Program called ACT–Actions through Cognitive Training
- SHEP, “Supervised Healthy Environment for Parenting”
More information about our programs can be found on our website at www.hunterdonprevention.com.
“HPR would like to thank Attachments for this generous donation, as well as all of the Hunterdon shoppers who helped to contribute that day,” said Karen Widico, Co-Executive Director of HPR. “It’s donations such as this that allows HPR to provide low-cost or free programs to the residents of our county.”
“It was our pleasure,” said Kathy Guzman, who handles Marketing & Events for both Attachments and SAGE stores. “We look forward to partnering again in the future and thank HPR for the important work they do in our community.”
