In 2012, the Rockingham Community Action Center served 717 individuals in 271 households in Raymond.

Joyce Kimball, Outreach Center Director said, "Hannafords is very generous giving us baked goods, meat and produce 3 or 4 days a week and the Dollar Store donates personal care items on a weekly basis. All this is very helpful to families that have emergency situations. "

The American Legion Bowling League also held a fund raiser on Saturday, Sept 14, at the club and raised $750 that was donated to the New Life Church Food Pantry.
