HILLSBORO, N.H. – OSRAM, a leading global lighting and technology company, collected more than $7,000 in product donations after hosting its third annual food drive on March 24, 2017. Employees at the company’s Hillsboro, N.H., location, which is the manufacturing, sales, and administrative facility for OSRAM’s automotive division including SYLVANIA Automotive, contributed canned and dry goods, personal care items, household paper products, pet items and monetary donations to benefit numerous local charities. The local programs that benefited from these donations include Hillsboro Area Food Pantry; Weare Food Pantry; Antrim Bennington Food Pantry; Henniker Food Pantry; The Grapevine Family & Community Resource Center; White Birch Community Center; and the Kids Adventures Afterschool Program in Hillsboro.
