Bank of New Hampshire Donates to FIT Food Programs


Laconia, New Hampshire – June 28, 2021 – Bank of New Hampshire is proud to support the efforts of Families in Transition (FIT) as they seek to prevent and break the cycle of homelessness across the state of New Hampshire.

Bank of New Hampshire’s $5,000 donation will support FIT food programs. These food programs, including meals provided by dining services and groceries provided through their food pantry, support a much needed service for individuals and families who are experiencing hunger and food insecurity. FIT was recently able to expand their food pantry in a new location that is now able to provide groceries for an average of 325 Manchester residents experiencing food insecurity each month.

“More and more, organizations are seeking opportunities that have a direct impact on our programs,” said Pamela Hawkes, Vice President of Resource Development at Families in Transition. “Bank of New Hampshire’s generous donation towards our food program will ensure families and individuals in our community continue to receive the food assistance they need.”

“We understand the impact and challenges that some face every day which is why we are proud to present FIT with this donation towards their food programs,” said Tiffany Baert, Vice President, Marketing Officer for Bank of New Hampshire. “We embrace our responsibility to be a leading corporate citizen. By supporting organizations like FIT, we can help strengthen our communities and enhance the lives of our neighbors in impactful ways.”

Bank of New Hampshire is proud of this partnership as we aspire to remain an independent mutual financial institution, delivering innovative solutions and exceptional service, while assisting our employees, customers and communities to build brighter futures.
