On 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.


On 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! 


End 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.
