Community & Events
As a 501c4, ALPOA is committed to giving back to our Community. Our goal is to create and support events that benefit our members, our town and other non-profit organizations.
ALPOA held their 7th Annual Clothing Drive for the Andover Food Pantry on 12/15/17 This Clothing Drive takes place on the same day of the Food Pantry’s Holiday Basket pick up it offers to 150 families the weekend before Christmas. “It all started on a ping pong table", said Wendy Kopp, ALPOA’s Outreach Committee Chair, "and over the years as we started to receive more and more donations we moved to the old school house and this year to the big lower room in the Congregational Church.” All clothes are given to the families and any remaining donated to Charities of Hope. “We appreciate the efforts of ALPOA to help us offer additional items for the families we serve, said Joan Soucy, Director of the Andover Food Pantry. “They organize and set the whole thing up and our families are able to go home with warm jackets, boots and all types of items for their grandkids, grandparents and themselves.” For more information please contact Wendy Kopp, Outreach Committee at HomeDivah76@gmail.com.

Channel 3 Kids Camp
Andover Lake is proud to partner with C3KC's Teen Leadership Group. As one of their volunteer acts, this amazing group of kids have helped to spruce up our beach area (this year on 5/20/17). As a reward, they are treated to a day at the beach!
ALPOA has donated Memberships to various raffles to benefit such organizations as the Andover Elementary School PTA's Santa Breakfast and the Andover Food Pantry Pig Roast.
