How to help needy Nicaraguan families

There are endless ways to give to the people of Nicaragua through Connecticut Quest for Peace.

Give Time

Clean out your closets, drawers and garage and donate only gently used items in good condition to our humanitarian cargo aid program. Your donation is tax deductible.

Lend a hand on CT Quest shipping days and help pack trucks filled with humanitarian cargo aid. Imagine the satisfaction you’ll feel waving off Nicaragua-bound trucks filled with boxes packed with your own hands.

Take an hour and assemble School Kits and Health Kits for Nicaraguan children and families who can’t afford educational supplies or toiletries.

Come to Fiesta Nicaragua, our annual Fall fundraiser, held each year at the Benedictine Grange. You’ll meet new and old friends and enjoy great Latin food, music and entertainment. Join our mailing list to stay in the know about Fiesta Nicaragua dates and other CT Quest events.

Take time to read our Nicaragua mailings: Join our online mailing list and get news, updates from our community-based partners in Nicaragua, and emails from CT Quest.

Give Resources

Make a tax-deductible donation to support a program that you believe in. Your donation will give the people of Nicaragua the tools they need to create sustainable communities that will flourish in the future. With more than 97% of all donations going DIRECTLY to our programs in Nicaragua you can be sure that your money is being spent in the best possible way.

Donate your family’s gently-used items including summer clothes, old computers, office equipment and more. Not sure what’s needed in Nicaragua? Take a look at our most wanted donations.

Organization Gifts

Recycle old computers gathering dust in your school or workplace and donate them to our humanitarian cargo aid program.

Organize your co-workers, students or members of your church, temple or mosque: A workday at our warehouse is a great team-building activity. Contact us to learn more about clean-up and organizational projects.

Ask your group to explore our website, choose a worthy program and organize a fundraiser.
