HPM Insurance of Amherst and Bedford is once again organizing a food drive for its employees, clients and community to benefit SHARE Outreach of Milford. In addition to the food drive, HPM is also coordinating with its employees to volunteer their time the week of Thanksgiving to help assemble and distribute food baskets.
If anyone is interested in contributing to the donation, items can be dropped off at either office location:
- 101 Ponemah Road in Amherst (at the intersection of 122 and 101A)
- 3 Bedford Farms Drive #306 in Bedford (which is the actual barn building)
Donations will be accepted from 8:00 am until 5:00 pm Monday – Friday through November 18th. Delivery of the items will be made on the morning of Monday, November 21st.
According to the executive director of SHARE, Christine Janson, their organization is asking for items like canned cranberry sauce, stuffing, gravy, instant potatoes, canned vegetables, cake mix and frosting, pie crust, canned pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, evaporated milk, and/or juice (no glass). Gift cards to area grocery stores will also be accepted and appreciated.
SHARE Outreach is a great organization that provides food, clothing, and emergency financial assistance to local families that are in need. SHARE Outreach also collaborates with other organizations to better provide access to information and services, with an overall goal to promote self-reliance while also maintaining the dignity of clients.
The team at HPM Insurance are hopeful that if a lot of people give just a little bit, the holidays will be better for everyone.
