BARRINGTON – To support her brother Travis’ battle with Leukemia, Ultra Geothermal owner, Melissa Aho, and the Green Alliance are bringing together local businesses to put on a yard sale for his benefit. The yard sale will take place on July 26 at 358 Route 4 in Barrington, N.H. (just off the the Lee traffic circle) from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Any yard sale appropriate donations – clothing, sports equipment, DVDs, books, etc. – or baked goods are greatly appreciated and can be dropped off at Ultra Geothermal. The event is being sponsored by Green Alliance Business Partner, Get It Going.

Travis was diagnosed with Leukemia in December 2013 and has since struggled with the physical and financial burden of the disease. In order to help alleviate some of his financial stress, Melissa organized a large-scale community yard sale. Melissa came up with the idea to use her business and its connection with the Green Alliance to help promote and support the yard sale.

A dedicated advocate for the environment, Travis Aho graduated as an Environmental Studies major and currently works in Florida as a law enforcement officer for the U.S. Department of Agriculture to protect the Ocala National Forest.
