==Please note: This was in regards to our 2013 donation- In 2014, we raised more money, and easilly 5 times as much food as the previous year==
This made it's way into our mailbox recently, and we thought we should share it with all of you who donated at the door this year-
Dear Friends at The Magickal Marketplace & Psychic Faire:
Thank you very much for your recent donation of $477.00 on April 15, 2013 to the Nashua Soup Kitchen and Shelter, along with 13 bags of food delivered by Beth Washington & Mike Dolan. So many people help us in so many ways. Donors like you send financial contributions that are critical to keeping our doors open and providing our services to folks in need.
Sometimes even those who need help from us also donate. A couple of months ago a man who comes to the kitchen for food stopped by with several cases of peanut butter. He had saved from his meager resources to buy them. A good friend of his, who was known for helping others, had died. This man wanted us to distribute the peanut butter in his friend’s memory to celebrate his life and his caring.
Almost weekly we receive contributions from kids who have saved their allowance or asked their friends and family to donate to us instead of getting gifts for a holiday or birthday. Young children who receive many gifts from parents and grandparents come in and donate new toys to our birthday room for kids who have nothing.
We are here because we are part of such a caring community. Thank you for your part in our work.
