KNP Services

KNP Provides the FOllowing Services to our Kearsarge neighbors

Help Our Neighbors Navigate Local Support Resources

There are many resources available to Kearsarge Neighbors in an emergency. Whether you need food, housing, fuel, childcare, help with moving, eye glasses or ongoing assistance. However, it can be overwhelming to identify which ones are appropriate and how to apply and be accepted.

KNP volunteers have experience working with these local organizations. We can walk alongside you to help figure this out.

We’re happy to share our experience and guide you as you move towards a more sustainable footing – and our services are free.

For more information, please email us or call us at 603-317-5900 Ext. 1

FREE: "Garden in a Tray" for Growing a Family Garden

Several neighborhood partners in the Kearsarge Region have created a Garden in a Tray Program to create long term food sustainability exclusively for Kearsarge Region Families in need and Essential Medical Workers.

The Garden in a Tray contains 42 edible plants (vegetables, herbs and flowers) grown by Spring Ledge Farm. These plants are ready for planting. We will provide you with tips on planting and season-long support to help your family grow a successful garden.

Register today for a free Tray by contacting the New London Hospital Wellness Office.

This program is brought to you by Kearsarge Neighborhood Partners (KNP), the Kearsarge Food Hub, Colby-Sawyer College, Spring Ledge Farm and New London Hospital / Newport Health Center.

Cook & Deliver Meals for those Unable to do so

It’s important to us that you and your loved ones have adequate food, both short- and long-term. We can:

  • Cook & deliver a meal for those unable to do so themselves
  • Deliver food to clients of the Kearsarge Lake Sunapee Food Pantry
  • Pick up & deliver your groceries.

Please call KNP at 603-317-5900 Ext. 1 to let us know how we can help

Phone Check In

We have volunteers who would love to:

  • Regularly check in on you
  • Be a friendly support person through a period of isolation.
  • Set goals with you (if you’d like) to help you move through a crisis

Call KNP at 603-317-5900 Ext. 1 to let us know how we can partner with you during a difficult situation.

Delivering Wood for Fuel

We provide deliveries of split firewood for those who use wood for heating and are experiencing heating emergencies.

Please dial KNP at 603-317-5900 Ext. 1 to arrange a delivery.

Light Yardwork / Outdoor Repairs

If you are not able to do fall or spring cleanup, or you need a small outdoor repair, call KNP at 603-317-5900 Ext. 1 to let us know how we can help.

Small Moves

If you need help moving from a home within the Kearsarge region (and  are unable to pay for a mover) we can call a “flash mission” of volunteers to show up at your house on moving day to load your small U-Haul truck. 

  • The truck should be large enough to move all of your belongings in one trip.  
  • You will need to arrange for other moving help at your new location. 

Similarly, if you are moving INTO the Kearsarge area, we can be available to unload your small moving truck when you arrive. 

  • Note that this is normally a 2 hour commitment, as we are not equipped to help move larger households.
