MANCHESTER — An organization that helps nonprofits renovate buildings with donated materials and labor is going to unveil its renovation plans for the Manchester Police Athletic League building named for a fallen officer.
The Michael Briggs Community Center provides a safe and positive after-school environment for Manchester's inner-city youth. Each day up to 100 youth between the ages of 5 and 21 come to the center to participate in judo, aikido, wrestling, boxing, rugby and lacrosse and other free activities. They also receive academic help from Manchester police officers.
Briggs was shot and killed in the line of duty in 2006.
The 16,000 square-foot, 105-year-old center is in need of significant repairs to its heating systems, flooring, and parking lot. The project was selected by Building on Hope for renovation.
The kickoff for the project along with a chance to tour the building and see the plans runs from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Wednesday
