NHGA Makes Donation to New Hampshire Food Bank
Author: Kate Kellar
February 14th 2017 - Concord, NH –  On Tuesday, January 31st, the New Hampshire Golf Association (NHGA) donated 88 pounds of food along with a monetary donation to the New Hampshire Food Bank.  The donation was made possible through their Pints Fore Hunger event that occurred at Great North Aleworks in Manchester on January 18th.
 
Thirty people made it out to Great North Aleworks for the NHGA’s Pints Fore Hunger event and each either made a monetary donation or brought donation items for the New Hampshire Food Bank.  According to the New Hampshire Food Bank, the 88 pounds of food and money that was donated will provide 445 meals to those in need throughout the Granite State.
 
With this being the NHGA’s first-ever Pints Fore Hunger event, NHGA Executive Director Matt Schmidt said, “This was a great way for our members to get together during the long winter and support a great New Hampshire charity. The Food Bank means so much too so many and we were thrilled at the support and turnout of our members. We look forward to growing Pints for Hunger and working with both Great North Aleworks and the NH Food Bank for many years to come.”
 
The event supported the New Hampshire Food Bank in multiple ways.  Not only were donations a form of entry to the event, but the New Hampshire Food Bank Culinary Job Training Program catered the event.  Paul Morrison and his team at the New Hampshire Food Bank put together a great spread of food, which is something they do often for events at Great North Aleworks and other places in the area. 
 
The New Hampshire Golf Association is pleased to be able to give back to a worthy charity in the State and bring our members out to Great North Aleworks to enjoy a casual, social evening.
