Mother’s Day Roses for local Homeless Moms

Ongoing fundraiser through 5/3.

Every mom deserves to feel special on Mother’s Day. To help make this happen, the United Way of Greater Nashua partners with UPS each year to purchase and donate roses to homeless mothers on Mother’s Day.

We will be delivering the roses to The Front Door Agency, Anne-Marie House, Marguerite’s Place, Inc., Nashua Soup Kitchen and Shelter, Inc., Harbor Homes, Keystone Hall, Bridges Domestic Violence, and Mary’s House.

GIVE HERE to support homeless moms this Mother’s Day:


This year, if we exceed our goal, left over funds will be used to support local new mom’s and dad’s at our Third Annual Community Baby Shower!

Help us to spread the love!
