Since the founding of Greylock ABC in 1968, more than 100 graduates have gone on to colleges all over the United States. Approximately $100,000 a year is needed to run the program, all of it raised locally through a fund drive and special projects, like ABC Room Service, the clothing sale and the ABC linen sale.
All proceeds benefit the Greylock A Better Chance program, greylockabc.org.
