Seacoast Family Promise has been serving families in need from a range of backgrounds since 2003. We help families who are experiencing homelessness to find stable housing and return to self-sufficiency. Our Mission: To empower families with children experiencing homelessness to achieve sustainable independence through a community-based response.

 

Blue Ocean Society was founded in 2001 by two whale watch naturalists, Jen Kennedy and Dianna Schulte, who were frustrated with the lack of translation of open ocean research into information that could be used by the public. Our Mission: We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit that protects marine life in the Gulf of Maine through research, education and inspiring action.

PORTSMOUTH — The Birch Tree Center and Seacoast VeloKids were the two surprise beneficiaries of the upcoming Seacoast Rotary’s 2015 Turkey Trot.

They were two of the 20 area organizations that collectively received more than $22,000 in grants during the Rotary’s annual awards reception held Wednesday evening at the Tyco Visitors Center at Strawbery Banke.

“We usually raise about $20,000 from the Turkey Trot that will be split between the two organizations,” said Briana Carrigg, Seacoast Rotary president-elect.

The Birch Tree Center in Newington serves students with autism from 21 school districts.

“With this grant money, we plan to bring the benefits of music to the school,” said Jessica Squier, director of development and communications for the center. “We’ll be able to purchase listening equipment and have an artist-in-residence to teach students how to communicate through music.”

Peter Mead, vice president of programs for Seacoast VeloKids said the organization has just started a cycling team at Portsmouth High School.

“It’s a healthy, fun sport,” he said. “We started with the elementary and middle school kids and run a summer ride program at Stratham Hill Park.”

This year VeloKids will host its third annual Family Mountain Biking Day on May 31.

Each grant recipient gave a little background of their organization and how the money would be spent.

Martha Stone, executive director of Cross Roads House, said the money would go towards new mattresses as they cycle out and replace about 25 percent of their mattresses each year.

“Last year we had 469 people use our shelter,” she said. “Three-fourths of our budget comes from donations.”

Lori Lampert of the Parents Music Club of Portsmouth High School said its grant money would go towards new band uniforms.

“This (money) will go to our nutrition and food program,” said Richard Wagner, executive director of AIDS Response Seacoast.

Seacoast Rotary Treasurer Steve Scott said the Turkey Trot draws about 3,000 people. The seventh annual event will be held on Thanksgiving Day.

“These are the true movers and shakers of the Seacoast,” said Seacoast Rotary President Matt Junkin.

Scott added that the awards reception was always “a fun event” and an opportunity for the organizations to connect with each other.

Grant awards ranged from $500 to $2,500. Other award recipients included Families First, PPMtv, Richie McFarland Center, New Heights, Seacoast Community School, Gundalow Company, Housing Partnership, Seacoast Family Promise, A Safe Place/SASS, Piscataqua Maritime Commission, PS21, Susan G. Komen VT-NH, Arts in Reach, Boy Scouts and My Breast Cancer Support.

In honor of World Polio Day, which was recognized on October 24th, Seacoast Rotary Club of Portsmouth, NH sponsored “Bridge the Gap to End Polio”. 

Susan Von Hemert, Midge Nelson, Joan Nickell, Martha Netsch, Joy Riddell, Debbie Rodier, Pam Gray from Kittery, Joshua Holt from Kittery After Hours, Susan Gold of Portsmouth Rotary and District Governor Lawrence Furbish were instrumental in organizing and promoting this event. (They were even so gracious as to order up a beautiful day!) Thanks to all the Clubs, committees and individuals who made the event a success. 

As many as 300 Rotarians, family and friends walked onto the new Memorial Bridge to raise awareness and funds for Polio Plus, Rotary International’s 27-year mission to eradicate the crippling childhood disease. Rotary Clubs from District 7780 (southern Maine and seacoast New Hampshire) were all involved, helping to make the final push to eradicate Polio. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation will match each dollar raised two for one, making “Bridge the Gap to End Polio” an event that is sure to have an impact. Be sure to join us next year!

 

 

This morning the Seacoast Rotary Club challenged the Rotary Club of Portsmouth to the ALS Challenge and is proud to be making a donation of over $800 to www.alsa.org.
