PLYMOUTH — Bank of New Hampshire presented Pemi-Valley Habitat for Humanity with a donation of $1,000 as part of bank's "BNH Gives Back" campaign.

Three New Hampshire non-profit organizations were featured each month through June on the bank's Facebook page and voted on by the public. The organization with the most votes at 5 p.m. on the last day of the month receives a $1,000 donation.

"In this time of need we have gone from building one home a year to building two," said Brian McCarthy, Executive Director for Pemi-Valley Habitat for Humanity.

The money will be used to continue to build homes for those in need. Habitat for Humanity's work is accomplished at the community level by independent, locally run, non-profit organizations. Each affiliate coordinates all aspects of the Habitat home building in its local area including fund-raising, building site selection, family selection and support, house construction, mortgage servicing, volunteers and church relations.

"As a community bank with 21 offices throughout New Hampshire, we are proud to support the communities we serve, and assist in enriching the lives of its residents," said Vickie L. Routhier, SVP - Director of Marketing & Public Relations. "We are pleased to support Pemi-Valley Habitat for Humanity and their important work in the central New Hampshire region."
