ASD donates 100 personal toiletry bags to Nashua Soup Kitchen
NASHUA – The Academy for Science and Design donated 100 personal toiletry bags to the Nashua Soup Kitchen & Shelter recently.
Part of the mission of ASD is to create responsible global citizens, and as such, ASD periodically organizes service projects that support the school’s humanitarian efforts.
For this service project, ASD partnered with the Nashua Soup Kitchen. Each grade was assigned items to donate in order to put at least 100 personal care packages together for homeless and disadvantaged people in the Nashua area. The items included shampoo, combs, toothbrushes and toothpaste, tube socks, soap, winter gloves and more.
“Let me share with you what we will be able to do with these: We can make sure everyone in our shelter gets a toiletry bag on Christmas morning,” said Carol Weeks, the Nashua Soup Kitchen’s community outreach manager.
“We see many homeless at breakfast, and it will be so nice for them to get something and know someone has been thinking of them.”
