Binnie Media donates to local organization to feed NH children


DOVER - A local organization that started on the Seacoast continues to grow as the need for food for hungry children continues to rise. The group is called End 68 Hours of Hunger. They give backpacks full of food to kids to take home on the weekends, since many kids don't have access to food when they're not in school.

The parent company of NH1 News, Binnie Media, made a five thousand dollar donation to the organization to help continue their efforts. President Bill Binnie was on hand to present the check on Thursday.

When the organization started in 2011, they were feeding less than 20 children in Dover. Now they've expanded to six states and feed more than 1,200 kids every weekend.

Thursday's donation will go toward their programs in Dover, Somersworth and Nashua.

Organizers say their greatest need right now is in Nashua.

The funds for the donation were raised by the NH1 News Children's Auction.
