The Boys and Girls Club of Greater Haverhill faces a March 1 challenge deadline to raise $25,000 for its “Back-a-Kid Fund,” which will be matched in full by the Amelia Peabody Foundation.

Bradford RF Sales of North Andover kicked off the drive, donating $5,000. Bradford RF Sales President/Owner Mike Crittenden, Vice President Michael Wholley, Regional Sales Manager Garrett Lynch and Officer Manager Jane Howe said in a statement, “We all either grew up or currently live in Haverhill and we felt that this was a great way to give back to the Haverhill community.”

The Back-a-Kid fund supports operations of the Club and ensures all children from Haverhill can participate in Club programs regardless of finances. No child is ever turned away due to inability to pay.

To donate, visit and select “Back a Kid” as your gift designation, or mail a check, payable to Boys & Girls Club of Greater Haverhill, to 55 Emerson St., Haverhill, MA 01830, and mention the back-a-kid match in your check memo. Gifts must be received prior to March 1 to count towards the match.
