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.

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. Click here to donate now.
NSKS always has need for volunteers to help us in our kitchen, shelters and with our many programs. Volunteers come from all walks of life. They come as individuals wanting to give back to the community, as members of churches, synagogues, scout troops, civic organizations, schools, and businesses. Our volunteers range in age from the youngest children baking cookies at home to our 91 year old kitchen volunteer. Our volunteers do much more than serve meals at NSKS. They sort and shelve food in the pantry, and organize drives to generate food and personal care donations. We've had volunteers help build play areas for our shelters, pick up food donated by local grocers and restaurants, stuff newsletters for mailing and assist on maintenance projects. At the shelters, they cook dinner, read to children and help them with their homework. Volunteers who serve on our board of directors set policy and ensure the financial stability of the agency.
