Supporting the schools


The Whitman Hanson Education Foundation is actively seeking new members to join its ranks. The nonprofit group provides grants for programs in the Whitman Hanson Regional School District. Recently, it has narrowed its focus to providing funding for programs that increase cultural awareness and introduce healthier food options in the district’s schools. The foundation typically holds two major fund-raisers a year: a children’s fitness festival in the fall and a spelling bee in the spring.

To join the foundation or for more information, e-mail, or go to
