Manchester's New Horizons' Shelter fundraiser expected to bring in $175,000
MANCHESTER – Sen. Kelly Ayotte and Mayor Ted Gatsas were among some of the 700 people that attended New Horizons’ largest fundraiser Tuesday morning.
New Horizons runs a soup kitchen, two homeless shelters and a food pantry that provides more than 900 Manchester families with hot meals and groceries.
According to The Union Leader, New Horizons’ breakfast was expected to raise about $175,000 to help fund the shelter’s daily needs.
On average, New Horizons’ two shelters welcome about 75 people each night and between 200 and 300 people are served a hot meal.
New Horizons’ is open 365 days a year.
Executive Director Charlie Sherman said last Saturday’s annual Tons of Turkeys fundraiser collected more than 22 tons of turkeys for members of the Manchester community.
