‘United We Sleep’ is next weekend

NASHUA – For the fourth year in a row, the United Way of Greater Nashua is planning its “United We Sleep to End Hunger and Homelessness” event.

This is set for 5 p.m. Sept. 20 to 9 a.m. Sept. 21 at Nashua Community College, 505 Amherst St.

The participants raise money to support the funding of United Way’s safety net of programs such as access to dental care, access to food supports for low income homebound elderly, and transitional housing programs to move people from homelessness to housing security.

“More than begin a fundraiser, the event is the opportunity for people to learn about the major causes of homelessness and explore pathways to success out of the cycle of poverty. Participants, through learning sessions, conversation, and experience, come away much more aware of how they can make a difference in the community,” United Way President Mike Apfelberg said.
