AUNE hosted two specialty cupcake sales, a Halloween bake sale, and a soup lunch which featured more than a dozen fabulous homemade soups, all generously supplied by members of the AUNE community. The annual fundraisers support Monadnock Center for Violence Prevention‘s (MCVP) Holiday Program. This year, AUNE raised $2,466.58, a record amount of money for AUNE.
Each year, the Staff Senate organizes this series of fundraising activities to raise money for MCVP’s Holiday Program. As the holiday season approaches, the MCVP staff selects families in need to receive sponsorship from generous local donors. In some circumstances, these donations are the only means for families to provide holiday gifts for their children.
MCVP began in 1978 as a grassroots volunteer organization known as the Women’s Crisis Center. In 2003, the agency’s name was changed to Monadnock Center for Violence Prevention to reflect its commitment to helping women, men and children, as well as its increase in prevention education and outreach efforts. Today, MCVP serves the 44 towns of Cheshire and Western Hillsborough Counties in New Hampshire.
