School, Workplace, or Community Group
Your group can make an impact
Contact Sara Ceaser, Director of Volunteer and Community Engagement, at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out how your group can volunteer at one of our Days of Caring like Gleaning United – Food Harvesting Day of Caring, our Community Baby Shower, or Shoebox Project to make an active impact. Or volunteer at one of our fundraisers like the Nor’Easter Run or Over the Edge to support folks raising money for United Way.
Consider hosting a collection for our Community Baby Shower, School Supplies Pantry, Shoebox Project, or Sock Drive, Rosie’s Pantry (our women’s hygiene pantry at Girls Inc.) or a food drive. You can also consider donating proceeds from your group’s fundraiser to the Community Impact Fund, which supports effective programs that address the most pressing needs right here in Greater Nashua.
Host a Kit Packing Day
“Household Basics” Kit Packing – Our neighbors living in transitional housing facilities, like veteran’s housing, recovery facilities, halfway houses, transitional housing for families, or people who have experienced domestic violence sometimes need things that aren’t available through a soup kitchen or free clothing closet. Everyone sometimes needs things like a roll of duct tape, a pair of scissors or tweezers, some thread and a needle, or a band aid. One of the volunteer projects United Way of Greater Nashua organizes is packing kits of these items for people living in transitional housing. If your company, scout troop, faith community, or other group would like to work on packing kits please contact us at email@example.com or (603)882-4011 to discuss a day for packing and methods of raising funds to purchase items.
Other Kit Packing Projects – We would love to work with your company, faith community, scout troop, or group of friends to pack kits for our neighbors in need. Groups working on this type of kit packing will raise funds to purchase supplies for the kits and come together at the United Way office or another location to put the kits together. Types of kits for groups to work on are: women’s hygiene kits, men’s hygiene kits, senior women’s hygiene kits, school supplies kits, and kits for people experiencing homelessness. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or (603)882-4011.
