18th Annual Show of Dreams
The High Hopes Foundation of New Hampshire and the New Hampshire Food Bank recently participated in the 18th Annual Show of Dreams, a car show featuring many unique and antique British cars, and split the profits among the two charities. The show took place at the Alvirne Hill House Field in Hudson New Hampshire. The High Hopes foundation is an organization dedicated to offering life changing experiences to chronically and seriously ill children in the state of New Hampshire. The New Hampshire Food Bank, a program of Catholic Charities of New Hampshire, serves as the only food bank in the state of New Hampshire. The owner of our franchise, Kevin Lee, volunteered for the event not only because of his interest in antique cars, but also because of his strong belief in giving back to the communities that we service. The show was a great success, seeing many attendees and a lot of fun had by all (not to mention the money raised for these two noble charities).
Helping Hannah Help Haiti
Hannah at the "Feed the Need 5K"
SERVPRO of Nashua is committed to helping our community, even when that means helping our community to help those abroad that are less fortunate. Recently, SERVPRO of Nashua donated towards the aims of a high school senior who was trying her best to make a difference in the world. Hannah, a high school senior from Nashua, NH, organized the “Feed the Need 5K,” which helped raise money for a lunch program in Haiti. According to Hannah, the 5K raised nearly $8,100 and 500 lbs. of food for the charity. SERVPRO of Nashua is proud to have supported Hannah in attaining her goal to help others and to help serve the communities in which we are a part.
