Support the Soupman is a registered 501(3)(c) charity… We help the homeless. The Soupman was founded by Peter Kelleher, who hails from Maine. This is where his son, Travis, tragically passed away after a long struggle with addiction. In his memory, Peter began a grassroots campaign that supplied homemade, hot soup to the homeless. This labor of love, soon evolved into more – supplying warm clothing, hygiene supplies, and our newest endeavor – portable showers. We would like the homeless to experience just a few of life’s comforts that most of us take for granted.
The Soupman has already purchased one portable shower which will be placed in Brockton, MA and is now raising
funds for a second shower for Bangor, ME. We’ve updated a gofundme page specifically for the this shower which cost almost $50,000. Please consider donating to this cause and share this post with any of your friends in ME and beyond…
Peter is also is planning a trip to ME during the next month to deliver over 1,000 backpacks. More details on this to follow.
