Longchamps Electric amps up support for the Manchester Police Athletic League.
There was no shortage of electricity, in the packed to capacity Alpine Club, for the Longchamps sponsored spaghetti dinner. The Longchamps team prepared and served a delicious spaghetti dinner as well as created an atmosphere of giving with raffles and silent auction items. MPAL would like to send out a great big "THANKS" to Longchamps Electric, attendees, and corporate/individual sponsors who made this evening incredibly successful. Your contributions will help the Manchester Police Athletic League continue to provide a free, safe, structured environment for at risk youth. The outpouring of generosity was overwhelming and deeply appreciated!
MPAL Boxing fights in Lowell!
On November 20th, two MPAL Boxers competed in boxing matches in Lowell, MA. Both fighters did amazing work with Matt taking a victory in his first ever match!

The Manchester Police Athletic League "Springs forward" with help from the Norwin S. and Elizabeth N. Bean Foundation.
The Manchester Police Athletic League (MPAL) operations and programs are blossoming this spring thanks to a grant from the Norwin S. and Elizabeth N. Bean Foundation. This grant will assist MPAL with the addition of enrichment and educational summer programs for Manchester youth ages 5 through 18 while also supporting development initiatives over the coming year. These program additions and operational changes will stretch MPAL's reach to more Greater Manchester youth and connect them with positive mentoring in a safe structured environment.

Santa’s helpers were in full swing, in the form of the NAM Knights, last Friday as they gave a monetary donation to both the Manchester and Nashua Police Athletic Leagues. The NAM Knights, a motorcycle club made up of veterans and law enforcement personnel, strive to honor the memory of American veterans and officers who lost their lives in the line of duty. These donations will assist the PAL programs to continue opening their doors for at risk youth and foster relationships between the area youth and police officers.
The Manchester and Nashua Police Athletic Leagues are 501(c) (3) non profit facilities offering programming for children ages 5-18 in the Manchester and Nashua area. PAL programs offer a safe structured environment emphasizing responsibility, and accountability to help kids, grow, make the right choices and become productive members of the community.
