Customers at New Hampshire liquor and wine outlets can raise money for the state food bank during this and next month.
The New Hampshire Liquor Commission (NHLC) is partnering with Bacardi USA and Horizon Beverages for the “750s for Change” campaign in an effort this year to raise $10,000 for the New Hampshire Food Bank.
Bacardi USA will donate $1 to the NH Food Bank for every Bacardi USA 750ml bottle purchased at NHLC liquor and wine outlets throughout February and March. Bacardi USA brands include all Bacardi brand liquors, Dewar’s, Grey Goose and Bombay, as well as Benedictine Liqueur, St. German Liqueur and Cazadores Reposado.
Bacardi USA anticipates the effort will raise $10,000 for the Food Bank.
“Bacardi USA chose the NH Food Bank because we understand that this can be a very difficult time of year as people are faced with heating bills and other expenses that come with the cold weather,” said Kristen Haubrich of Bacardi USA, which has partnered with the NH Food Bank previously for its “Cocktails for Charity” program, as well as its “Best of NH-Cocktail Contest.”
This year’s 750s for Change campaign is another example of NHLC facilitating partnerships aimed at raising funding for New Hampshire nonprofits. In the past two years, NHLC has teamed with the Animal Rescue League of New Hampshire, MooreMart, Easter Seals New Hampshire, Toys for Tots, and Wildlife Heritage Foundation of New Hampshire on campaigns raising more than $256,000.
“We are so pleased to be able to once again coordinate this partnership with Bacardi USA to support an organization like the NH Food Bank, which means so much to so many people here in New Hampshire,” said NHLC Chairman Joseph W. Mollica. “The 750s for Change campaign was extremely successful last year, when we partnered with Bacardi USA to raise $10,000 for the Wildlife Heritage Foundation of New Hampshire.”
The NH Food Bank, the only in the state, provides millions of pounds of food and resources annually to the hundreds of thousands of New Hampshire residents in need.
