2021 Days of Caring Events
Food Packing Day — April 7, 2021
April 7th, 12-6 pm
Adult Learning Center Gym – 4 Lake St, Nashua, NH 03060
Help us as we package 15,000 meals for the food pantries of Greater Nashua. Donations tend to decline after the holiday season and with Covid19 many families who rely on school lunch programs need to find alternatives, this event produces food for emergency reserves during the difficult spring and summer months. The food produced is developed to be highly nutritious but still very appealing to children. The Cinnamon Apple Oatmeal, Macaroni & Cheese, and Minestrone Soup are made to make a big difference in ending hunger, and don’t they sound great?!

Community Farming Day — May 11 & 12 2021 (May 13/14 Rain Dates)
Building food access in the community with an emphasis on creating sustainable farming and gardening spaces. Annually, we partner with Grow Nashua to increase food growing capacity. Last year we built a new food space at Dr. Crisp Elementary School. Check out some photos from the event HERE!

The Shoe Box Project for Seniors November 2021 (Date TBD)
Our annual shoebox project is a community collection to put together important resources for seniors. Each year we have a different theme and create care packages which are distributed through our partners, Meals on Wheels, The Caregivers, and Gateways Community Services. This year’s theme is “warm and cozy,” focusing on items which keep our seniors warm through the winter months. Check out this year’s wish list and get involved with the project:
We can help you customize a day of caring experience for your social organization or workplace. Let us know your interests and passions and we can connect you with community efforts where you can put your passion to work for the common good.
