On February 27, 2015, Thomas Blonski, President/CEO of NH Catholic Charities provided Dr. Alicia Harvey-Smith, President of River Valley Community College with a tour of several of Catholic Charities facilities. The sites included St. Teresa Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, Our Place (for day services for single parents), and the New Hampshire Food Bank, which are all located in downtown Manchester. While at the New Hampshire Food Bank, NH Governor Maggie Hassen received a charitable donation to the Food Bank, on behalf of the Governor of the State of Washington for the New England Patriots Super Bowl win over the Seattle Seahawks.
Dr. Harvey-Smith and Mr. Blonski are also working on a partnership between the two agencies to provide counseling services to River Valley Community College students. More details on this exciting new partnership in the weeks to come.
