CONCORD, N.H. – Through a partnership with the State Employees Association’s Campaign for Public Good, the New Hampshire Liquor Commission (NHLC) is helping to combat childhood hunger.
During the months of September and October, the NHLC will be collecting donations of peanut butter, tuna, canned fruit and canned soup at all 77 of its NH Liquor and Wine Outlet locations in support of End 68 Hours of Hunger, a not-for-profit organization seeking to end childhood hunger in America.
Specifically, End 68 Hours of Hunger aims to confront the approximately 68 hours of hunger that some school children experience between the free lunch they receive in school Friday and the free breakfast they receive in school on Monday by providing children with a bag of non-perishable food to take home on weekends, along with school vacation weeks and holidays.
Over the past six years, NHLC has raised more than $1.8 mill for dozens of charitable causes such as End 68 Hours of Hunger.
“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,” said NHLC Chairman Joseph Mollica.
