We’ve been issued a challenge! For every dollar you donate to NH, it will be matched, up to $750. NH’s fundraising goal is $1.2 million for their six major programs, which include early childhood education, senior services, and homeless families assistance. You may donate through our online giving or mail a check to the office, designated NH. Thanks!
Cold weather has returned and, with it, the need for warm clothing for the homeless. If you knit or crochet, please consider making a gender-neutral hat, scarf or gloves for Blanchet House. Adult sizes only.
