Community Coming Together! Cumberland Farms Raises Funds for the Nashua Soup Kitchen and ShelterAugust 09, 2012 –
(Nashua, NH – August 9, 2012) - The Nashua Soup Kitchen and Shelter (NSK&S) will be receiving a financial boost for its numerous housing and personal well-being programs thanks to a fundraiser sponsored by Cumberland Farms.
For four weeks beginning on Thursday, August 9th, Cumberland Farms will donate 20 cents from every Chill Zone beverage, iced tea and coffee (iced or hot) purchased at its newly remodeled store at 308 Daniel Webster Hwy in Nashua, NH to benefit the NSK&S’s food pantry, emergency shelter, and advocacy efforts, among other things. Cumberland Farms aims to raise at least $1,000 for the organization.
“Here at the Nashua Soup Kitchen & Shelter, we put a large focus on getting families back on their feet,” said Lisa Christie, Executive Director of the organization. “From serving 1,700 meals per week, to housing families, to teaching key skills that will help the jobless become gainfully employed, we want to make it possible for struggling parents to care for their children. The support from Cumberland Farms will help us do just that.”
“Cumberland Farms is very pleased to help the Nashua community in this important way,” said Ari Haseotes, President of the Cumberland Farms Retail Division. “The Nashua Soup Kitchen and Shelter is making a significant contribution to the lives of so many in the community and we look forward to supporting them with this fundraiser as they help improve the lives of families struggling during these challenging economic times.”
Over the past year, Cumberland Farms has donated more than $100,000 to support local organizations across the Northeast.
Cumberland Farms employees, along with youth, families, and staff from the Nashua Soup Kitchen and Shelter will hold a kick-off fundraiser celebration from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Thursday, August 9, 2012 at the Nashua store location.
The store is located at 308 Daniel Webster Hwy, Nashua, NH 03060.
