HOLDERNESS — White Mountain Auto Broker of Ashland and The Pemi Valley Habitat for Humanity ReStore of Holderness are working together to collect non-perishables, household cleaning supplies and personal hygiene goods for the Bristol Community Services Food Bank.
"The food drive will run into March to fill the void of the slow season after Thanksgiving and Christmas, when people need the most help. Both organizations look forward to working together to support Bristol Community Services with their ongoing projects," states Scott Malloch of White Mountain Auto Broker.
The Pemi Valley Habitat for Humanity ReStore accepts donations of new and used building supplies, housewares, furniture, and more. ReStore staff will clean and restore all donations. Proceeds are used to build Habitat for Humanity homes in the fourteen communities it serve. This past two years PVHFH has completed three homes on Hedstrom Way in Bristol. The fourth home will be fully completed later this year. The first three homes are already occupied with families who are very involved with Habitat. PVHFH Families work with a 0 percent interest rate mortgage. Their homes are constructed with donated and discounted materials and volunteer labor.
"Although Habitat and the ReStore's mission is to provide affordable housing, we are also here to serve our communities to the best of our abilities," said LuAnne Ryall ReStore manager. "The ReStore is teaming up with their customers in this food drive, to help build stronger communities"
Drop off locations are at the White Mountain Auto Broker in Ashland during business hours and at the ReStore Wednesday through Friday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. To learn more about how White Mountain Auto Broker and Pemi-Valley Habitat for Humanity are working together contact Pemi Valley Habitat for Humanity Restore or LuAnne Ryal at 536-1333.
