Embroidery By Everything Personal Donates Over $500 to ASPNC

Embroidery By Everything Personal of Littleton completed their first “Partner of the Month” fundraiser with Adaptive Sports Partners of the North Country (ASPNC).  The month long fundraiser was part of an on-going venture between the business and local non-profits where 10% of its profits for the month are donated to a local non-profit.  "We have always been big supporters of our community," commented owner Pat Beck.  "We appreciate having an opportunity to give back."

ASPNC was the first non-profit selected for the “Partner of the Month” program.  Headquartered in Franconia, the organization provides year-round opportunities in sports and recreation for persons with physical or developmental disabilities.  Currently it serves over 120 athletes from Northern Grafton, Carroll and Coos counties in New Hampshire, and Eastern Caledonia and Essex in Vermont. Participants are also welcome from other areas as well.  Their most recent event, Sunrise Ascent on Mount Washington, successfully involved over 100 volunteers taking four disabled participants to the summit of the mountain by pushing and pulling them in adaptive equipment specially designed for such a purpose.

Embroidery By Everything Personal owners, Pat and Andrew Beck, were thrilled to be able to donate a check for over $500 to ASPNC.  Sandy Olney, Executive Director of ASPNC accepted the donation stating, "Without the support of local business such as theirs, our operations would not be possible."

Located at 42 Cottage Street in Littleton, Embroidery By Everything Personal is open Monday through Friday from 9am-5pm, and Saturdays 10am-2pm through the holidays. For more information on ASPNC visit their website at www.adaptivesportspartners.org.
