Fall 2016
Supporter Newsletter |

Message from the Board
The volunteer Board of GBW has been busier this summer than in any other. Why? The word is out!  Social service organizations throughout Manchester, Bedford, and Goffstown are in increasing need of sources providing ready financial support, and yet too few such resources are available. Organizations are hearing how GBW is helping people through periods of crisis and increasingly are seeking our assistance. The bottom line: GBW is filling a need and we are delighted to be able to meet it. Between June 1 and September 1, 2016, GBW received fifteen requests for support; fourteen requests totaling $6,036.93 were funded, bringing our total distributions to over $36,000. Because of your support of GBW, people needing various kinds of medically-based support, rent and utility subsidy were served and helped out of their crises.  

This fall marks the beginning of GBW's 4th year, and we hope you will continue to show your loyal support of this community organization whose notion is simple and whose impact is profound.  We would love to have you join u
s at the many fun-filled events throughout the year or maybe even host your own informal gathering and make GBW the beneficiary.  All monies raised go directly to neighbors in need, and we rely on and value your support.

We always welcome new supporters and new ideas that help promote GBW's mission. Please share this newsletter with your friends and family, and take a look at our website to explore in depth all we do!  Maybe the next great idea for enhancing our impact lies within you?  We'd love to hear from you.

Here's to making 2016-17 our best year yet!

A Note of Gratitude From a Recipient:  The Reason Why We Love
The Impact and Potential of GBW!

"To Whom it May Concern:  Since last April of 2015 I have been dealing with 2 eye surgeries and a neck surgery this past October 2015 which has left me with permanent nerve damage in my left arm.  I have had to reach out for help in a variety of places to keep a roof over my head: Goffstown Welfare Office, The Episcopal Church, and Fuel Assistance.  And now you wonderful people have helped me with my electric brill with the help of Evelyn Redmond, Welfare Officer, here in Goffstown.  I would like to Thank You So Much for your help in this time of need.  Respectfully and God Bless."
