Workouts aid area fund for homeless
Get In Shape For Women Nashua is sponsoring a fundraiser for the Ending Homelessness Fund of Harbor Homes.
Participants get a workout with a personal trainer for $25, 100 percent of which gets donated to the Ending Homelessness fund. On top of that, Get In Shape For Women Nashua will match contributions for a total of $50. That contribution results in $200 to the Ending Homelessness Fund since a Housing and Urban Development grant matches donations three-to-one.
Visit the Harbor Homes Fundraiser tab at
nashua.com and follow the instructions. Schedule a workout anytime between Nov. 15 and Dec. 15. The goal is for 100 women to sign up, generating a total donation of $5,000 to the fund and $20,000 including the HUD grant.
Harbor Homes is a non-profit organization established in 1980. The group’s mission is to create and provide quality residential and supportive services for individuals and families challenged by mental illness and/or homelessness.
The Ending Homelessness Fund was initiated by private citizens working to bring an end to homelessness in Greater Nashua. Proceeds from the fund will be used to help homeless individuals and families find housing and services in order to end the cycle of living without a stable home.
The EHF has already housed 38 chronically homeless people, including a family of 5 and 8 veterans. The goal of the fund is to raise $200,000 before Dec. 31, as match money for a HUD grant. Since January, $115,000 has been raised. Visit
