Cardboard City IV

Next week we will have our 4th annual Cardboard City event to benefit New Horizons for New Hampshire - a meal center/food pantry/shelter here in Manchester.  We have raised over $15,000 in the previous three years for New Horizons through our Cardboard City efforts.

The night begins on Oct. 18 at 8pm with Mass in our gym with our chaplain Father Richard Dion.  Following that we will watch the 1994 film "With Honors" with stars Joe Pesci as a homeless man living near Harvard.  We will then head outside for the night to sleep in cardboard boxes and to experience a night of homelessness.  Each student is asked to raise a minimum of $35 but many raise more.  We will wrap up the next day at sunrise which will be around 7am.

If anyone would like to contribute to our efforts, you mail a check to me at:

Checks can be made payable to Trinity High School.
