Dartmouth Hitchcock Donates to New Horizons
Manchester, NH- January 21, 2010
Recently, Dartmouth-Hitchcock announced that its Regional Services Community Pillar Workgroup proudly presented a check for over $2,000 to Nancy Comai, Development Director for New Horizons, a locally-based adult homeless shelter, soup kitchen, and food pantry. New Horizon's is also home to Angie's Shelter for Women. In addition to this donation, the workgroup collected 61 boxes of food and warm clothing items for the non-profit organization.
Working synergistically with Dartmouth-Hitchcock’s overall mission, the goal of this workgroup is to create community partnerships, with the hope of making a difference. Over the past several months, the workgroup has coordinated a food drive, clothing drive, employee contests, and raffle opportunities for regional employees, all to benefit New Horizons.
"Due to the generosity of the Dartmouth-Hitchcock’s Regional employees, we far exceeded the goal set by the workgroup,” said Brenda True, Chair of the Community Pillar Workgroup. “New Horizons will be using the money, food and clothing collected to impact the lives of those who seek shelter at their Manchester facility.We, as Dartmouth-Hitchcock employees, are proud to be a part of that effort.”
Members of the Regional Services Community Pillar Workgroup include: Brenda True, Cyndy Fisher, Bernie Kravitz, Diane Desgroseilliers, Diane Boyd, Stephanie Corbeil, Jennifer Cleary, Dee Church, Irene Stevenson, Tom Devin, Sue Ackerson, Susan Austin, Patricia Harty, Lori Pigeon.
