NEPPA's Wish List
In order to continue to provide state-of-the-art training, we are constantly making improvements to the training center. We are always interested in potential donations of equipment and materials which can be used in the training center and in the pole yard. If you have items that you are no longer using but are still in working condition, they could be beneficial for training our students!
If you are graciously going to donate, please contact Sarah Braese at 978-540-2205 or firstname.lastname@example.org to make sure we are still in need of that item.
