Campaign encourages supporters to give back to community at rally with Oprah Winfrey
MANCHESTER,NH— Senator Barack Obama’s New Hampshire campaign announce today that it will hold a canned goods drive at Sunday’s rally in Manchester with the Obamas and special guest Oprah Winfrey. The campaign is encouraging supporters to bring canned goods and non-perishable food items for collection at the rally. This week, Obama issued a “Call to Serve” and detailed his commitment to making national service a cause of his presidency in a policy address.
“As we work every day to organize our way to victory, it’s important that our campaign give back to the community,” said campaign manager David Plouffe. “We’ve created a powerful grassroots base in the early states and across the country, and we believe asking our supporters to contribute a little will make a big difference for those in need.”
Food for the Hungry Drive Collection centers will be available at the Manchester rally. Attendees are encouraged to bring non-perishable items, with a suggested donation of 2 canned goods.
