2015 Projects

In recognition of our tenth year of service, Team Haverhill sponsored ten “mini-projects”– ways we can make a difference in our community with a little bit of time (one day or less) and a little bit of money ($150 or less).

We invited community members to submit ideas and announced the results at Team Haverhill’s Possible Dream community event on Monday March 2, 2015.

The winners include:

Downtown Haverhill Boxing Club – Boxing equipment or boxing membership to USA Boxing in order to compete.

Guitars for Elementary and Middle Schools – Refurbish guitars (up to 18) for school music programs.

Today’s Readers-Tomorrow’s Leaders – Connect with city leaders and have them read their favorite book to first graders at Tilton School. The books will be donated to Haverhill Public Library.

Haverhill Veterans’ Cemetery Sign – Buy and install a sign in Hilldale Ave Cemetery.

Winnekenni Basin Beautification – Extensive cleaning of debris, invasive species of vines, brush and dead trees around Winnekenni Basin.
