With Mother’s Day and graduations right around the corner, the weekend of April 30th and May 1st will be the perfect time to shop local – and to support The Scholarship Fund of Concord and Carlisle.
Our third annual Shop & Support weekend is an opportunity for our community to come together to support our local businesses, while, at the same time, assist with the unmet financial needs of our college students. The Scholarship Fund of Concord and Carlisle is the largest source of scholarships specifically for students in our community who need additional financial support to pursue their dreams of post-secondary education.
On April 30 and May 1, shoppers and diners are encouraged to look for the maroon, white and silver ribbons adorning participating businesses throughout Concord. These businesses support The Scholarship Fund of Concord and Carlisle, the largest source of need-based scholarships to students educated in Concord and Carlisle. Your support of these businesses will strengthen them and The Scholarship Fund!
