Hope School, and volunteered her time at the Nashua Soup Kitchen and the Tolles Street Mission. She ministered with the teen outreach at Sheepfold Church. Blanche also dedicated over 20 years of service volunteering at many nursing homes in the Greater Nashua area. She faithfully devoted time each day, both on her own and with two partners, to intercessory prayer on behalf of their families, friends, the country and the world. Whenever the opportunity presented itself, she handed out her Gideon Bibles.
