We also recognize that during these days of national crisis, it may be difficult for our elderly to leave their homes to get the supplies they need.

Double the population of Portsmouth struggles with food insecurity in the state of New Hampshire. This number will only increase during this time of crisis. Families with limited or no resources cannot afford food, let alone, stock up for two weeks supply. Tho our community has a strong food network in place to feed our kids, families, and elders, these supplies are limited. Contributions at this time would empower us to continue to help those who struggle in our community.
Things that our clients are asking for at this time:
Non-parashiable food items
unopened hygiene products
laundry soap/dish soap
Ground coffee (regular/decaf)
Healthy frozen meals
Children's Diapers (sizes 2-6)
Trash Bags (13 Gallons)
Local grocery store gift cards and donating online enable us to buy in bulk.
Please call before delivering items, 603-988-2671.

"Remember, our message is not about ourselves; we're proclaiming Jesus Christ, the Master. All we are is messengers, errand runners from Jesus for you. It started when God said, 'Light up the darkness!' and our lives filled up with light as we saw and understood God in the face of Christ, all bright and beautiful."
