Manchester, NH ─ Great Bay Corvette Club (GBCC) raised $12,350 to support the New Hampshire Food Bank during its fourth annual “Driven to Make a Difference” Charity All Car Show on September 16, 2017. The $12,350 raised during the event, which equates to 24,700 meals, supports the approximately 10-percent of New Hampshire residents, including approximately 13-percent of all children in New Hampshire, who do not know where their next meal will come from. GBBC previously raised more than $13,000 to support the New Hampshire Food Bank, a program of Catholic Charities, during the Driven to Make a Difference car show two years ago.
“Great Bay Corvette Club was started in order to give back to those in need and we are proud to be able to support the New Hampshire Food Bank,” said Steven Prefontaine, founder and president of Great Bay Corvette Club. “We had such a positive response in supporting the Food Bank during our second annual car show that we wanted to partner with the New Hampshire Food Bank once again to help fight hunger in communities throughout New Hampshire.”
Great Bay Corvette Club members, along with their Corvettes, came together on Saturday, October 21, at the New Hampshire Food Bank to present their donation.
“We cannot thank Great Bay Corvette Club and its members enough for their partnership, generosity and support,” said Eileen Groll Liponis, executive director of the New Hampshire Food Bank. “Community partners like GBCC are such an integral part of our organization. As the Food Bank receives no federal or state funding for our food distribution program, donations like these go a long way in helping to feed the one in ten Granite Staters who are food insecure.”
