Salem Community Benefit, the wholly owned charitable corporation of Salem Co-operative Bank, recently donated $20,000 to the New Hampshire Food Bank. The check was presented by Ann Lally, President and CEO of Salem Co-operative Bank to the NH Food Bank’s Executive Director, Eileen Groll Liponis.
In New Hampshire there are over 300,000, or 1 in 9 men, woman and children who don’t have enough to eat. New Hampshire Food Bank serves as the center for food collection and distribution to over 425 non-profit food agencies throughout the state. NH Food Bank also prepares over 500 meals per day which are distributed to Boys & Girls Clubs.
“Our donation will be earmarked for the New Hampshire communities that we serve including food pantries in Salem, Windham, Derry, Plaistow, Hampstead, Londonderry and Pelham”, said Ann Lally. “For every dollar donated, $.97 goes directly to the food pantries, which will provide two meals to our neighbors in need.”
