Andover Citizens Receive Help from KNP Volunteers

Kearsarge Neighborhood Partners serves nine towns

By Nancy Allenby

Kearsarge Neighborhood Partners (KNP) is a local volunteer organization where neighbors in our region help each other flourish.  KNP volunteers are honored to work with neighbors in the towns of Andover, Bradford, New London, Newbury, Springfield, Sunapee, Sutton, Warner, and Wilmot. 

In Andover, KNP volunteers have delivered emergency fire wood, done light yard work or outdoor repairs, and have transported patients who needed to get to treatments at Dartmouth-Hitchcock.  Volunteers are also available to be phone buddies for people who are isolated or in need of contact.  

Andover families received vegetable garden trays through the “Tray It Forward” program in the spring and throughout the month of November. KNP partnered with the Andover Hub to collect winter coats to keep neighbors warm this winter.  

For those with more complex, long-term needs, KNP Advocates have worked with Andover families on budgeting and financial review and advised them on navigating local services to help them move away from crisis and toward wholeness and stability in their lives.
