Along with the community service projects, the club also has a charitable fund (501(c)) that is distributed to local charities and organizations at the end of every club year. We host multiple fundraisers during the club year to raise monies for this fund. For the club year 2017/2018 we raised $5,150 and will donate these monies to seven local charities and organizations; St. James Food Pantry, St. John Neumann Food Pantry, Big Brothers Big Sisters of New Hamshire, Camp Naticook Scholarships, Merrimack Fire Fighters Union, Animal Rescue League (Bedford) and Home Health and Hospice Care Good Grief Program.

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.
At the beginning of every club year our first service project is filling backpacks for the Merrimack Welfare Department. For 2018, we filled 21 backpacks with all the necessary supplies to get kids-in-need off to a good start.
Twice a year, 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 2018 - 2019. Please refer to our Club Calendar for the upcoming service events.
