NHHEAF Network Organizations' Employees Charitable Giving Program Recipient of Volunteer NH Spirit of NH Award

Concord, N.H.– On Tuesday, November 1, The NHHEAF Network Organizations’ NHHEAF Network Cares program will receive the Volunteer Program Champion Award during Volunteer NH’s 2016 Spirit of NH Awards Ceremony. The ceremony will be held at Concord’s Capital Center for the Arts.

The NHHEAF Network Organizations created NHHEAF Network Cares, an employee initiative through which food and monetary donations are voluntarily collected and donated to nonprofit organizations in New Hampshire, in exchange for the opportunity to dress in casual attire.

In addition to supporting “Casual Days for Charity”, the company also provides one “Volunteer Day” per calendar year to each employee where employees are encouraged to perform community service throughout the state of New Hampshire.

“We are honored to be recognized by Volunteer NH with this award,” states Rene A. Drouin, President & CEO of the Organizations. “Our employees are committed to improving the communities in which they live and work, and we are proud of their efforts.”

Since the initiative’s inception in 2014, NHHEAF Network employees have donated over $4,000 in monetary contributions and have collected over 6,500 pounds of food. In addition, employees have performed nearly 1,300 hours of volunteer service to nonprofit agencies in New Hampshire.
