TFMoran gives $3,000 to help with NH hunger during the Holidays

This year has been a challenging one for many businesses, families, and individuals due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. With statewide social distancing guidelines in place, TFMoran’s annual company holiday lunch for more than sixty employees was unable to take place. Instead, TFMoran’s principals donated what would have been the cost of the holiday lunch to local food banks. It is estimated that this contribution will provide approximately 6,000 meals in total, to New Hampshire people in need.

On December 8th, Abby Sprackland from The New Hampshire Food Bank visited TFMoran’s Bedford office receiving a check from Dylan Cruess, TFMoran’s COO and Principal for $2,000. The New Hampshire Food Bank, a program of Catholic Charities New Hampshire, has been working to relieve hunger in the Granite State since 1984. The New Hampshire Food Bank procures and distributes food through more than 400 non-profit registered agencies including food pantries, low-income housing sites, family crisis centers, soup kitchens, senior nutrition centers and emergency shelters. Since the spread of COVID-19 there are approximately 1 in 7 men, women and children in New Hampshire who are food insecure, a projected 55,500 additional people and in total more than 181,090 across the state, a 69% increase.

“We are grateful to TFMoran for their generous donation which will help to provide approximately 4,000 meals this holiday season,” said Eileen Liponis, Executive Director, New Hampshire Food Bank, “The pandemic has brought on many unprecedented challenges for our neighbors this past year. No one should have to worry about where their next meal is coming from, especially around the holidays.”

On December 9th, TFMoran’s Portsmouth office staff and its Division Manager and Principal, Corey Colwell, presented a $1,000 check to the seacoast food pantry Gather.  On behalf of Gather,  Seneca Adam Bernard, Associate Executive Director, and Arthur Cousins, Pantry/Warehouse Manager, accepted the donation.

Gather is based in Portsmouth, NH and serves all ages in the Greater NH Seacoast region including Rockingham and Strafford Counties. Gather’s mission is to make the Greater Seacoast a hunger-free community by distribute nourishing food to people who do not have enough to eat; take a leadership role in building an equitable and sustainable regional food system; and galvanize public support for ending hunger. Gather is also the Seacoast’s only preventative health-focused food pantry, meeting the hunger needs of this community through the provision of fresh healthy food.

After learning about a new website just launched, FrontLinesNH.org by a collaboration of four southern New Hampshire hospitals which tells their compelling stories in the fight against COVID-19 and how the community could help, TFMoran wanted to be a part of this community effort. The website offers a way to support our community by supporting our dedicated front line health care professionals and institutions who are responding tirelessly to this Coronavirus pandemic. TFMoran’s principals made a $2,500 donation through the website to Catholic Medical Center in Manchester. Donations can also be made through FrontLinesNH.org to the Elliot Hospital, Southern New Hampshire Medical Center and St. Joseph Hospital for their COVID-19 response efforts.

In addition, several corporate donors including St. Mary’s Bank, Southern New Hampshire University, Service Credit Union,  Primary Bank, Delta Dental and Anagnost Companies will double the impact by matching donations of $2,500 made through the FrontLinesNH.org site and through donor advised funds, dollar-for-dollar, for the first $85,000 donated.
