She's joining the U.S. Marine Corps at the Mall of New Hampshire in Manchester at 10 a.m. Tuesday to draw awareness to the effort to gather toys for needy children.
Afterward, Hassan is handing out Thanksgiving turkeys at the Nashua Soup Kitchen and Shelter. She's also planning to attend an annual Thanksgiving lunch feast at Harbor Homes in Nashua.
