In addition to our social activities and charitable donations, Merrimack Friends and Families actively participates in service projects for the community. We have many diverse service activities and we aim to offer a wide assortment so that we can include everyone in the club in some form or another.
Merrimack Friends & Families has a charitable 501(c) fund that is distributed to local charities and organizations at the end of every club year. MFF participates in multiple fundraisers during the club year to raise monies for this fund. For the club year 2022/2023 we donated $10K to the following local organizations in support of their ongoing missions:
Heating Assistance for the Merrimack Elderly
MFF has a two part focus as a social and charitable organization. As a charitable organization our mission is to support locate charities and organizations either with a service project or donation of monies from our charitable fund at the end of the club year.
At the beginning of every club year our first service project is filling backpacks for the Merrimack Welfare Department. For 2020, we filled 10 backpacks with all the necessary supplies to get kids-in-need off to a good start. In the Spring, we fill Easter baskets for the Merrimack Welfare Department. In 2021, our 20th year, we filled 32 baskets for 14 families.
Twice a year, Spring and Fall, MFF will clean up their Adopted Road in Merrimack. We adopted Lawrence Road - road on the way to the dump.
We are in the process of planning the service projects for the upcoming club year 2023 - 2024 which begins September 2023. Please refer to our Club Calendar for the upcoming service events.
