For the second year in a row, we will be collecting new and gently used backpacks, non-perishable food and other items for Liberty House that we will deliver. Last year, we were able to donate over 400 items to Liberty House thanks to the generosity of the Goffstown community.
Where it all began:
In April 2015, we met Keith Howard, Executive Director of Liberty House, who was a “book” in the 2015 Human Library. We learned how the staff and volunteers of Liberty House advocate for and assist homeless veterans all across our state to rejoin their communities and regain fulfilling, independent lives..
Visit http://libertyhousenh.org to find out more about this great organization.
Homeless veterans face unique challenges and it’s our turn to extend a helping hand; Liberty House has put together a wish list of items that they could use. The Library will be collecting items on the wish list through September 30; please consider donating.
“For more than a decade, Liberty House in Manchester, NH has been providing a safe, supportive, substance-free housing community for American veterans transitioning out of homelessness.”
