Merrimack County Savings Bank recently pledged $25,000 to Boys and Girls Club of Central NH through the Community Development Finance Authority (CDFA) of New Hampshire’s tax credit program. An additional $25,000 in tax credits was pledged to the Club in 2015. The Bank’s investment supports the construction of a dedicated space for the Boys and Girls Club in Suncook.
The final structure will be named the Allenstown Community Center and will house the Boys and Girls Club of Suncook, which is a unit of the Boys and Girls Club of Central NH, and the Community Action Program’s Suncook Senior Center. Its construction will allow the organization to double the number of youth served each day. The Allenstown Community Center is expected to open in June 2016.
