The Gale River Motel is proud to support the efforts of the Bancroft House, a homeless shelter in Franconia, founded in 1982. The mission of the Bancroft House is to provide sanctuary for women, children, and families who find themselves without a place to call home.
The 2nd Annual Longest Night is an event where individuals choose to be homeless for an evening, camping out on December 21st (the winter solstice). Having solicited donations from sponsors, the participants raise money in support of the Bancroft House.
A donor last year, the Gale River Motel, has stepped up as a Contributor this year donating $500 in support of the Bancroft House. This grass-roots organization operates primarily from the generosity of individual donors and this single fund-raising event. For more information or to donate, contact the www.thebancrofthouse.com
