One of Nashua’s newest restaurants recognizes the importance of keeping families strong and raising children and teens that make good decisions – and they’ve partnered with The Youth Council to make a local impact. On November 15th, Portland Pie Company raised $855 through their holiday kick-off event in partnership with Shipyard Brewing Company, to make a difference with local families. 

“As parents struggle with the stress of raising kids, we’re the place they turn,” explains Youth Council Director Betsy Houde. “Whether the youth is struggling in school, arrested for a minor offense or experimenting with drugs, we can help them get back on track,” she said.

Houde was contacted by Portland Pie Company’s Maine headquarters about being the beneficiary of the event.  “We’re excited to nurture a partnership with The Youth Council,” said Chief Operations Officer Joe O’Neil.  As patrons purchased Shipyard products that day and tickets for multiple raffle items, they knew the proceeds were going to a good cause.

“This was exactly the gift we needed right now,” Houde said. “Heartfelt thanks to the Chamber of Commerce member that recommended us.”
