Blog : Come Celebrate the Holidays with Us!

By Craig | Dec 3, 2014 | in

The Green Alliance sure knows how to throw a party. If you were able to attend any of this year's festivities, from the Spring Music Bash to the sold-out Isles of Shoals Summer Party Cruise, the GA Community has made all events a truly special experience. And with the holiday season now in full-swing, we expect the Holiday Bash to be the best yet!

Join us on December 23 from 5:30 - 8 p.m. at long-time Green Alliance Business Partner, the Portsmouth Brewery, which has graciously offered to host this year's party for a second year in a row. The Brewery will open the La Ponza Lounge to the Green Alliance community and includes appetizers, great beer (the first one is on us, see more about that below), and the most spirited company you can find on the seacoast. The event is free for Green Alliance members and Business Partners.

While the event only runs until 8 p.m., the Brewery is happy to have folks stay longer! A full menu is available upstairs, and the kitchen offers delicious food from its varied menu until 11 p.m.

If you have been meaning to join the Green Alliance, there is no better time than now. Not only will you have the opportunity to come to the Green Alliance Holiday Party, but you have a year of discounts at green businesses and invitation to all 2015 member-only events.

RSVP to save your spot today!

As a community-centric organization, we strive to make our community a pleasant, safe, happy, and green place for all to enjoy. This community encompasses a lot of people, from all walks of life. Some of whom are less fortunate, and could really use some generosity this holiday season.

We know our Green Alliance community is full of giving, caring individuals. That is why the GA is setting up a food donation bin at our headquarters in downtown Portsmouth. All food donations will go to Footprints Food Pantry in Kittery, which serves families without the financial means to provide meals and necessary goods to their family on a consistent basis.

Items that are always in high demand at Footprints include: peanut butter, canned vegetables and fruit, pasta, pasta sauce, macaroni and cheese, cereal (low sugar please!), oatmeal, canned tuna fish, dog and cat food, first aid supplies, and more. A bin will be set up in GA headquarters at 75 Congress St., Suite 304 in downtown Portsmouth from December 2 to December 23. We will also be exchanging a drink ticket (good for one free beer) at our Holiday Party.

Before you head out to do your holiday shopping in downtown Portsmouth (at local businesses, of course), check your cupboards for items you can donate. Stop by the GA office to drop off your goods, and join the GA for only $25 (so you can get out and do your shopping with some generous discounts).

Get yourself a Green Alliance Membership for only $25 here! Or, better yet, pick up your membership in our office when you come to drop off your food donation items!
