Westborough – When HYPE9 read the Community Advocate article stating that the local food pantries were experiencing shortages in October this year, they decided to kick off the food drive for the Corridor Nine Chamber a month early. On Friday, Oct. 19, HYPE9 members spent the day at Roche Brothers in Westborough and achieved the single biggest success in the history of collections for the Chamber’s Annual Food drive! They collected a total of 908 items and over $114 in cash.

HYPE9 members were overwhelmed and grateful by the generosity of the patrons of Roche Brothers that day and to Mark’s Moving & Storage for annually donating all the boxes needed for the food collection.

HYPE9 is the Corridor Nine Chamber’s young professional group of 21- to 40-year-olds and there is no cost to join the group.  HYPE9 is dedicated to networking, professional development, and community involvement.  Members of this group are interested in being leaders in their business, the Chamber, and their community.

Anyone interested in joining HYPE9 can contact the Corridor Nine Chamber office at 508-836-4444.
