Kicking off 2010 by Helping the Friendly Kitchen of Concord, NH

The Etsy Angels were super busy in 2009 raising almost $1500 for various charities during the year. We've decided to stick with smaller, local charities as they need our help the most. Many of these smaller charities rely solely on local support and volunteers. We want to help make a difference for those in need.

During January 2010, the Etsy Angels Team will work together to raise money for the Friendly Kitchen of Concord, New Hampshire. Purchasing items from participating Angels' Shops allow portions of proceeds to benefit this very worthy organization.

A little information about the Friendly Kitchen (taken from the organization's website, http://www.thefriendlykitchen.org/ )

The Friendly Kitchen has one purpose -- to feed the hungry. We are the only soup kitchen in the Concord, New Hampshire area. Anyone who comes to our door is welcome – without question or qualification. Since the Friendly Kitchen first began in 1980, it has served over 600,000 meals and has seen a steady increase in guests from year to year.

Located in Hope House, at 14 Montgomery Street in Concord, the Friendly Kitchen serves an evening meal every day and breakfast on Saturdays and Sundays.

The Friendly Kitchen is run almost entirely by volunteers and it relies on donations from individuals and businesses to pay its expenses. Most of the food is donated by individuals, food drives, area businesses, the NH Food Bank, the Capital Regional Food Program, the Community Action Program, and from the volunteer serving groups.
