Inside Gray


Backpack Club awarded

The Gray-New Gloucester Backpack Club has received a Drive for Education award from Berlin City for the third consecutive year, giving the program the financial security needed to stock its shelves through the end of the school year.

The club is made up of volunteers, including students, school staff and parent volunteers. Its pantry is run by the Gray-New Gloucester High School Community Service Club and the EXCEL Program to help students of all ages who need extra snacks and food.
