Morning Waking Crew ‘Goes Orange’ to Fight Hunger
Did you know that 1 in 9 people in the state are not sure where they are going to get their next meal?
The Morning Waking Crew is joining the effort to make sure everyone has enough to eat in honor of Hunger Action Month. Your favorite DJs were sporting the color orange yesterday at the New Hampshire Food Bank headquarters in Manchester for 'Go Orange Day'.
It was a sea of orange at the food bank, and it was all to raise awareness about the issue of hunger in New Hampshire.
Donations can mean the difference to the thousands of people facing starvation each day, according to Executive Director Melanie Gosselin. Volunteer Coordinator Erin D'Loughy added that volunteers make a major difference in the success of their efforts.
The New Hampshire Food Bank and WOKQ are not alone in the fight against hunger, and you can help.
Jamie Staton from WMUR joined the Morning Waking Crew to talk about NH Tackles Hunger, which will take place on September 26 and 27 at every high school football game in the state. You are invited to donate food items when you attend the game.
Ocean State Job Lot also has their 3 Square Meals program, where a percentage of any in-store donations will be matched with funding to feed our state’s hungry.
Manchester Mayor Ted Gatsas made an appearance to support the amazing efforts being made by New Hampshire citizens to help their neighbors.
Join the fight and donate to the New Hampshire Food Bank today. Let us know if you contributed and help spread the word.
