In an open letter to the community, founder Josh Nadzam called the progress “exciting” and reported that the founder and CEO of the original Manchester Bidwell in Pennsylvania, Bill Strickland, was in town in late September to meet with Project officials and several donors.
 
“We are very close to our fundraising goal and we will be providing more information about this at the presentation,” wrote Nadzam.
 
The MBRP plans to create a nonprofit center with a youth visual arts after-school program for at-rish youth and an adult job training program for unemployed adults. The center is based on the original MB in Pittsburgh and will take on the theme “environment shapes lives.” For more information, visit here.
