Ralph Bates, a Manchester philanthropist, has donated $100,000 to Northeast Senior Health. The gift allowed the Spectrum Adult Day Health Program, which serves clients with Alzheimer’s disease and their families, to purchase two new vans to transport clients to Spectrum facilities in Beverly and North Andover.
