Please visit your Hannaford Stores at 79 Bicentennial Drive in Manchester, NH and at 833 Central Avenue, Dover, NH and help support NHBCC!

For the month of May 2016, the New Hampshire Breast Cancer Coalition will receive a $1 donation from each purchase of a specially designed blue Good Karma reusable bag at Hannaford in Manchester and Dover, NH.

Visit your store … head straight for the reusable bag rack …  and grab a few of the bags with the good karma design.

“NHBCC is proud to have been selected to benefit from the Hannaford Helps Reusable Bag Program,” said Nancy Ryan, President, NHBCC. “NHBCC relies almost entirely on community fundraising events and the generosity of companies like Hannaford to support our work.”

Hannaford Helps Reusable Bag sales was designed to create revenue streams for deserving local nonprofits like the New Hampshire Breast Cancer Coalition.

Since NHBCC designed and launched the Support Services Fund (SSF) in 2006, we have assisted over 500 New Hampshire breast cancer patients navigate difficult and trying financial crises during their breast cancer treatment. The SSF is a fund of last resort for women, men and families who need help paying for the basic necessities of daily living, so they can focus on their breast cancer treatment and getting well. A month’s rent, heating oil or propane, utilities, car repair, child-care, a medical co-pay or COBRA — expenses many of us take for granted — are a few of the expenses that the SSF covers. This program is made possible only by the support and generosity of individuals, businesses and corporations who want to help. As an all-volunteer organization, NHBCC puts every SSF dollar to use immediately to assist patients and make a meaningful difference in their lives. If you, or someone you know, is battling breast cancer and might need financial assistance from the NHBCC Sup-port Services Fund, visit our web site ( to download an application form. Complete the one page application and take it to your social worker to sign. NHBCC is here to help.

NHBCC receives requests for more financial expenses than we are currently capable of fulfilling. With your support, NHBCC can provide additional critical financial aid to breast cancer patients in need. To help, visit
