Blog : Food Drive Bin at Green Alliance

By Katie | Dec 2, 2014 | in

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 GA 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 December 23 Holiday Party at the Portsmouth Brewery (5:30 - 8 p.m.; RSVP to now)! 

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 GA 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!
