BowFighting hunger

The Gary S. Dillon Detachment of the Marine Corps League in Bow has started a program called Marines Fighting Hunger. We go to various fairs and stores and collect money for local food banks. At the Deerfield Fair we collected $1,200 for the Deerfield Community Church’s Food Pantry. We presented the check to them this Sunday at the 9 a.m. service.

Food, monetary donation drive

In response to the recent gas line explosions that have affected nearly 40 homes throughout the Merrimack Valley – directly impacting the towns of Andover, North Andover, and Lawrence – Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Verani Realty, who has an office location in North Andover, has taken up a food and monetary collection to aid the community in need. Berkshire Hathaway is also extending their annual VeraniCARES food drive through Oct. 31 to benefit the Lazarus House and will be setting up a tent in front of their North Andover office to accept food donations.
