Local Nonprofits Seek Donations to Provide Thanksgiving Essentials to Strafford County Neighbors in Need, MVSB to Match up to $15k

Oct 11, 2023

Four Strafford County nonprofits – Community Action Partnership of Strafford County, The Salvation Army of Rochester, SHARE Fund, and Grace Community Church – are partnering together to provide Thanksgiving essentials to local individuals and families.

Together, the organizations expect to distribute Thanksgiving dinner essentials to more than 800 Strafford County households this year and they are seeking the public’s support to ensure a memorable holiday for recipients. Local Bank and community partner MVSB (Meredith Village Savings Bank) has stepped up to match financial contributions up to $15,000.

“Each of these local nonprofits plays a vital role in addressing food insecurity throughout the year, and we are very proud to be working together to bring added comfort and joy to our local residents this holiday season,” said Allison Bussiere, who coordinates the Seacoast Food Providers Network. “We would like to thank MVSB for their generous match as well as the New Hampshire Food Bank for their ongoing support – helping us to maximize our impact with this tremendous initiative.”

“With rising household costs, we know the need will be great this year and we are very proud to offer our financial and volunteer support to help these phenomenal organizations do what they do best – taking care of our community members,” said Marcus Weeks, MVSB President.
