In partnership with the State Employees Association’s Campaign for Public Good, the NH Liquor Commission (NHLC) is collecting food donations at all 77 of its NH Liquor & Wine Outlets to support End 68 Hours of Hunger. The food drive is the kickoff for a new Liquor Commission program that gives employees the opportunity to submit nonprofits for recognition and to play a key role in fundraising and awareness efforts.
“NHLC is deeply committed to supporting nonprofits throughout the state. Over the past six years, in partnership with suppliers and brokers, NHLC has raised more than $1.8 million for dozens of charitable causes,” says NHLC Chairman Joseph Mollica. “NHLC’s 1,400 full and part-time employees take a deep personal interest in the communities they live and work in. We are thrilled to launch a program that allows our employees to further embrace their communities and better the lives of Granite Staters.”
End 68 Hours of Hunger addresses the approximately 68 hours of hunger that some school children experience (between the free lunch in school on Friday and the free breakfast on Monday) by providing children with a bag of non-perishable food to take home on weekends, school vacation weeks and holidays.
Now through October 31, all NH Liquor & Wine Outlets will serve as a collection site for the following items:
- Peanut butter (plastic, 10-18 oz. jars)
- Canned tuna (5 oz. cans)
- Canned fruit (14-16 oz. cans)
- Canned soup (15-19 oz. cans)
