Local timeshare advertising firm holds the largest Food Drive in company history. With a huge contribution to the New Hampshire Food Bank and Metropolitan Ministries, was able help its local communities.

The Annual Buy A Food Drive has come to a close. This event stretched from October 15 to November 22. In the first few days it truly was the season of giving. Employees of this local advertising firm set a goal of 500lbs. This increased to 1000lbs after an impressive first week resulted in over 700lbs of food.

Their new ½ ton goal was easily conquered. The food and drinks slowly became a huge pile of groceries. The benefactor of this Food Drive is the New Hampshire Food Bank. It has recently opened a new storage facility in Manchester, New Hampshire. This is the only food bank in the granite state. They help to feed over 127,000 people each year. Even in the grip of a recession the group donated as many cans, jars and boxes as they could. This has resulted in a gift of 1590 pounds and $1200 to the NH Food Bank.

This is not the first year that Buy A has held a great Food Drive. In December of 2009 the staff donated 348 lbs to Metropolitan Ministries in Tampa, Florida. This year, the group was able to donate nearly 2500 lbs to that same charity. Even customers were able to be part of the event. For the first time ever, the local business used a portion of its revenue toward a cash donation to local charities.

Wes Kogelman, president of Buy A expressed his appreciation at the overwhelming sign of charity and giving. "It's great to see this kind of generosity in an office where everyone is feeling the recession. Even though people are struggling, we can still come together and contribute what we have and make a huge difference."

Over the past few years, Buy A has seen a lot of success. The marketing firm services over 500,000 timeshare owners. Eager to give back to its communities, both offices have made this Food Drive an annual event. If you would like to join this team, Buy A is always seeking professional advertising executives.
