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!

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.

MPAL was chosen as the 2016 site for Building on Hope! Building on Hope is an organization of volunteers who work with builders, architects and designers to transform the facilities of non-profits into spaces that can best support the organizations mission. MPAL’s selection for this great program means a re-designed Michael Briggs Community Center that will greatly enhance the ability of MPAL to support Manchester’s youth and community.
