---- — Triskelia Wellness holds food drive

DERRY — Triskelia Wellness held its first food drive from Nov. 15 through the end of the year to benefit the New Hampshire Food Bank. The company offered complimentary consultations, chiropractic evaluations, health findings reports and 30-minute massages, valued at $179 in exchange for the donation of 10 food items.

Triskelia Wellness collected 110 pounds of food. Donations continue to be accepted until the food is dropped off at the Food Bank on Jan. 27.

“I read an article in the local paper about how the New Hampshire Food Bank was critically low,” said Dr. Dawn Buik, the company’s owner. “The Food Bank is important to many in the community and their overall health. We felt a need as a new business in the area to help in whatever way we could.”

People are encouraged to continue to bring nonperishable food items to Triskelia Wellness at Brookstone Park, 16 RR-111, Building 2, Suite 5 in Derry until Jan. 27. The office is open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday.
