NH Gives – Provide healthy meals for those most in need
Join Families in Transition-New Horizons (FIT-NHNH) in conjunction with NH Gives Day to combat hunger among homeless families in New Hampshire. Help us raise $10,000 to provide healthy meals to those most in need across the state of New Hampshire.
NH Gives is a statewide 24-hour online fundraising event that builds community by connecting donors to local nonprofits, including us. From 6:00 p.m. on June 6 to 6:00 p.m. on June 7, help us raise funds to provide healthy and nutritious meals for those most in need across the state of NH.
