There are a number of ways you can help:

Your Generosity of Time and Caring
The Nashua Soup Kitchen can only fill its mission to serve the poor and homeless men, women and children of our community with the help of our neighbors and friends. Some participate in the daily life of the "kitchen" as volunteers; others contribute cash or goods to help meet the needs of these less fortunate people in our community. Some are Board Members; others volunteer on one of several fundraising committees.

One way to help right now:
e-mail your friends about our website.

Donations: Cash and In Kind
Donors make all the difference in the lives of the men and women who come to the Nashua Soup Kitchen & Shelter. Your generosity helps NSKS provide meals, job training, support, and hope as well as short-term housing. In addition to monetary donations, NSKS relies on thousands of donations of food and supplies to provide needed support to guests in our soup kitchen and our emergency shelters. About 75% of all support comes from private contributions and 92 cents of every dollar goes directly to programs of the NSKS.
