The Alliance for Greater Good organizes fundraisers to benefit a variety of groups.
We hold back-to-school drives in collaboration with the City of Portsmouth's Welfare Department. Raising money for the purchase of backpacks and school supplies for students who otherwise could not afford them.
We collect new hats, mittens, and scarves, which are given out at Gather's annual Thanksgiving food distribution event. Gather provides hunger relief to Seacoast residents.
Assisted Living Residents
We engage community members, including school children, to write holiday cards to seniors living in long-term care facilities.
Restaurant Workers & Food-insecure Residents
Partnering with Take Out Hunger, we raised money for food insecure residents and gave work to restaurant employees during the pandemic.
Women Leaving Shelters & Recovery Centers
Collaborating with Purseverance 207 we collected gently used purses and wallets for women transitioning from homeless shelters, recovery centers, and domestic violence shelters. We also raised money through a local cabi stylist to fill these purses with necessities, such as deodorant, soap, toothpaste, etc.
Neighbors Needing Financial Assistance
We hosted a fundraiser for Womenaid of Greater Portsmouth, who provides short-term financial assistance to neighbors in need when they have nowhere else to turn.
Families and Individuals Needing Mental Health Services
We hosted a Lantern Festival to illuminate 400 years of community kindness as a part of the Portsmouth 400th Celebration. We raised $22,000 for Seacoast Mental Health Center to help individuals and families with their mental health needs.
