Well School raises funds for MATS

For the second year in a row the fifth grade class at The Well School baked and sold cookies to raise money for Monadnock Area Transitional Shelter in Peterborough. This year the class raised $318. On Monday, March 17, Joan Foucher, president of MATS, talked with the class about homelessness and accepted the donation. During the discussion the class learned that on average a two-bedroom apartment in the region costs $1,140, and that last year MATS provided temporary housing and services for 17 children and 10 adults.
