An Amazing 22-year Partnership with ACE!

Hudson Ace Hardware Supports Students with Special Needs since 1998!


For twenty-two years, Hudson Ace Hardware has partnered with the Hudson City School District providing a non-paid volunteer job site for students with special needs to gain work skills in their community. On average 3-4 students per year take advantage of this opportunity. “I cannot say enough how positive and nurturing this environment has been for my students,” says Erin Quinn, Intervention Specialist and Co-advisor to Project Support at Hudson High School.

In its second year, Store Manager Dale Marvin determined yet again another way to support students with special needs by offering for sale customized “Explorer” brand Yeti products and donating 50% of the profits to help offset the cost of Project Support, a high school club that sponsors social activities for students with special needs and their typical peers.

We value our unique partnership with the dedicated staff at ACE Hardware for their caring, kindness, and commitment in the support of our students! This is yet another example of Hudson Schools and a Hudson business working together to help better the lives of children!
