Pinkerton scores in Hoops for Hunger

The New Hampshire Interscholastic Athletic Association and its member schools recently announced the results of the fifth Annual Hoops for Hunger Program.

The Hoops for Hunger program was created to challenge all NHIAA member schools to compete to raise money to benefit food pantries within each school’s community. High schools that participated collected donations during the boys and girls games during the 2013 basketball season.

The dollars raised at each school benefited local food pantries in the communities where the dollars were raised.

The NHIAA will like to recognize the top fundraisers within each division: Division I, Pinkerton Academy; Division II, Pembroke Academy; Division III, Winnisquam Regional High School; Division IV, Littleton High School.

The total raised for food pantries across the state was more than $8,090 this year.

Over the past five years, more than $44,800 has been raised for local food pantries through the Hoops for Hunger Program.

This program was seen as a way for the high school based athletic programs to give back to their communities and the state in these difficult times.
