Change Lives with Spare Change - This Saturday!
Grab a handful of change and help Child and Family Services of New Hampshire change lives this Saturday, September 23.
Music, food trucks, dance teams and art displays by over 50 artists—it’s all happening this Saturday! Bellwether Community Credit Union is sponsoring WZID’s Art Jam Bridge Fest to raise money and awareness for the fight against the heroin/opioid crisis.
Bring all your spare change!
Your change will help local families affected by opioid addiction. Every donation will earn you magnetic “coins” you can use in our very cool butterfly art sculpture. Nothing is a more beautiful symbol of change than a butterfly—we hope you can join us this Saturday to bring this piece of art to life.
“We are excited to be a sponsor of this great event and to help raise money for such a worthwhile cause,” said Michael L’Ecuyer, Bellwether Community Credit Union President/CEO. “The addiction crisis is an epidemic in our community, and Bellwether is proud to be among those coming together to fight against it and promote the importance of the arts.”
Hip, bold and an explosion of color and creativity. Join us this Saturday, September 23.

Eric Escobar will appear as the featured artist, along with a 6ft x 40ft graffiti art mural. The schedule for the day includes an interactive community wall, dozens of vendors and food trucks, a kids area, and Angels of Addictions Healing Through Art with Ann Marie Zanfagna.
