Building Hope’s Future in Science, the volunteer group raising money to build a science lab in the middle school wing at Hope Elementary School, recently received a donation from Allen Insurance and Financial of Camden.
The Hope group has been reaching out to local businesses as they work to raise the $136,000 needed to fund this project. A matching grant has been donated when the group reaches the $50,000 mark. The result of this effort will be the school’s first fully-equipped science lab.
“We are pleased to be able to support this important education initiative,” said Gilbert Fifield, president Allen Insurance and Financial.
The Hope Elementary School website includes additional information about this project: hopees.u69.k12.me.us.
