Help Fight Hunger and Keep the Manchester Community Warm This Winter!


Join us in the fight against hunger and help keep Manchester community members warm this winter by donating to Elliot Health System’s Annual Food and Clothing Drive!

All employees and departments are encouraged to start collecting non-perishable food items and warm winter clothing. Donations may be dropped off on Thursday, November 19, from 6 am to 6 pm in Parking Lot #7 (located outside of The Elliot Hospital Café).

Food donations will be sent to the New Hampshire Food Bank.

Items most needed include:

  • Canned fruits and vegetables
  • Whole grains (rice, pasta, cereal, oatmeal)
  • Canned protein (tuna, chicken, nuts, beans, peanut butter)
  • Soups, spices, and broths

Clothing donations will be sent to Brookside Congregational Church.

While all clothing donations are greatly appreciated, items most needed include:

  • Hats
  • Mittens
  • Ski pants
  • Coats
  • Socks
  • Boots                                                                                                        

To ensure proper social distancing, simply place the items to be donated in your trunk, pull into the parking lot, and a volunteer will retrieve the items from your car.
