September 27th 2017, Committee Chairs, Nan Colby and Diane
Hooper and their spouses Larry Colby and Pastor John Hooper,
along with committee members, Ethel McConaghy, and Susan Fraser
were honored to present to Meredith Jacques and Sara Newell,
Coordinators of the End 68 Hours of Hunger program at BES,
Barnstead Elementary School, a check in the amount of $2,261.61.
September 23rd 2017, the Maple Street Church and the
Congregational Church of North Barnstead at the Barnstead
Farmers Market formed a unity to raise the money needed to
support End 68. The need was brought to our attention several
weeks ago and immediately our community members stepped up to
help with donations, volunteering, shopping, and lots of hard
work! We were lucky enough to have a car and grandfather clock
donated which helped raise $958 from the raffle and the yard
sale raised $1,303.61. Sabrina Kirwan won the Car and Kevin
McCartney won the Grandfather Clock, which he is selling and
donating the money back!
68 Hours of Hunger’s Mission Statement is: “Confront the 68
hours of hunger experienced by some local school children by
providing them bags of food so that they can have food to eat
over the weekends.” End 68 is 100% volunteers and donations.
Anyone can drop off money or food donations at the Barnstead
Elementary School located at 91 Maple Street in Barnstead, or
contact Meredith or Sara at 603-269-5161.
