Sunday the 8th of April Dr. Johanna added the Nashua Soup Kitchen 10k to her training run for the Gate City Marathon. This is the 25th Annual race raising money for the Nashua Soup Kitchen. This year there were 750 runners. Registration for next years race opens in December.
On Tuesday, April 10th we met with our friend Cheryl at the Nashua Senior Center to to see what help we could offer for Meals On Wheels. Starting on the 17th, we rode along with several drivers to learn more in depth about what volunteering to deliver meals 2-4 times a month entails. Rather than make it just something we do this April, we applied to be drivers and by the end of May we’ll be driving a weekly route delivering meals in Nashua. We are excited to be able to help Nashua in an on-going way. They are looking for more drivers, if you are interested you can apply here.
Meals On Wheels has an upcoming walkathon in Manchester on May 19th.
Another local charity we wanted to help was Habitat for Humanity. We quickly discovered that their build days would interfere with our patient hours and opted to spend a pleasant Wednesday afternoon volunteering at the Restore on Amherst St. We spent the afternoon straightening up displays and helping people move furniture around. Registering for a shift is easy on their website.
Our linens drive for the Nashua Humane Society has been a fantastic success, thanks to our patients. You’ve managed to over flow the bin with blankets, towels, sheets, and even several large dog beds. Thank you!
