Today is our "launch day" for the Hannaford Cause Bag program! For the entire the month of January, we will receive $1 from each Hannaford Helps bag purchased at the Hannaford located on Fort Eddy Road in Concord. This is an amazing opportunity for CCEH not only to raise funds, but also to spread awareness about our cause within the community.
Please show your support by purchasing these beautifully designed reusable bags! They can be found on the reusable bag rack close to Registers 1 and 2 (see photo to the right).They are the BLUE BAGS!! There are a number of other reusable bags - be sure to get the blue one! The Hannaford Helps bag also features the good karma message. We strongly encourage you to share this news with family and friends as well!
Our goal is to sell 250bags, equivalent to $250 raised. Help us to BEAT this goal! We are confident that with the help of our dedicated supporters, we can reach this goal during our month in the program and further carry out our mission.
Thank you for your continued support. With your help we are reaching our fundraising goals!
Thank you Hannaford for choosing the Concord Coalition to End Homelessness as the Cause for Hannaford Helps this month!!!
Shelter up and Running!
The Winter Shelter opened on schedule on Monday, December 18 at St. Peter's Activity Center on N. State Street, where it has been housed for the past 2 years. The NEW SHELTER on CCEH property continues under construction! CCEH has contracted with Thrive Outdoors to manage the shelter. Jake King, founding partner and CEO of Thrive, is the former Resource Center Manager and has managed the shelter for the past 2 years.
the Resource Center was opened by Tom Fredenburg and he handed out special gift bags to those who made it in. The bags were full of
snacks and useful items for personal care, and were provided by
Hearts for Kindness. Many thanks to those who contributed to these bags! And to Tom for opening on Christmas to provide warmth, welcome, and an opportunity to hand them out.
