New Horizons Food Pantry struggles to fill Thanksgiving baskets

MANCHESTER - New Horizons Food Pantry in Manchester said it's struggling to fill this years Thanksgiving baskets.

New Horizons estimates it will be down nearly 200 turkeys because Elliot Hospital is not giving them to employees who then typically donate to the pantry.

A hospitals spokesperson said the hospital is cutting costs and instead of giving out turkeys there will be an employee dinner.

The pantry provides 1,200 baskets to families in need and this is the time of year where they begin preparing for Christmas.

If you are interested in donating they said turkeys and gift cards are most helpful.

Manchester, Hanover St. & John Devine Drive
