It's too hot to cook, so come out with your family and friends and have fun for a great cause!
The Ale House is hosting a party to celebrate Tom Brady's birthday AND to support Our Neighbors' Table on Monday, August 3, 6:00pm. The event is open to the public and will feature a live drawing for a pair of tickets to see Tom Brady and the New England Patriots play at Gillette Stadium (Sect 204) and a framed, autographed action photo of the MVP Quarterback! Tickets are being sold through August 1st at the ONT office or online.
In addition to the live drawing for the Pats tickets, the Ale House has also secured lots of other fun prizes, including a pair of BRUINS TICKETS to be raffled off that night! Remember, this event is open to the public, so get there early! And get your Patriots Raffle tickets now!
Thank you to ONT Board member Frank Childs for donating the tickets, to the New England Patriots for the autographed photo, and to Newburyport Framers for generously providing the custom framing.
ONT will be hosting a food drive this Saturday, July 18th, 9a-3p, at the Market Basket in Rowley. We're hoping to fill our box truck to help keep our food pantry programs stocked through the summer.
Most people think of holding a food drive during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. But the reality is hunger is prevalent in our community year-round. Summer months are particularly hard for families whose children typically get free- and reduced- meals at school.
1 out of every 8 children and more than 1 out of every 5 seniors in our area are facing hunger and need our help.
Join us on Saturday, 9am-3pm, at Market Basket, Rte. 1, Rowley, and donate non-perishable food items and toiletries to help us keep food on our neighbors' tables all year. Check out our wishlist for our most-needed items. See you Saturday!
The 2015 Align Credit Union Rock CAN Run raised nearly $4,000 to support ONT's food pantry programs! Now in it's second year, the Rock CAN Run, organized by 10-year old Andre Bailin and his friends, continues to grow and bring in great support for ONT. More than 100 runners, walkers and supporters of all ages turned up on June 14th for One Loud, Hard Mile up Po' Hill carrying bags of donated food and toiletries. This year's event featured celebrity runners Rep. Jim Kelcourse, Sen. Kathleen O'Connor Ives, and former Amesbury Chamber Executive Director Melissa Cerasuoulo. ONT sends a huge thank you to Andre and Eli Bailin and their entire team, to our celebrity runners, and to all of the runners and walkers who made the hard climb. And thank you to Align Credit Union for being our title sponsor! We'll see you all again next year!
