The York County Shelter Programs

The York County Shelter Programs

The York County Shelter Programs, an emergency
homeless shelter in Alfred, Maine, would appreciate
the donation of a working evaporator and condenser
unit for a 10'x12' walk-in freezer.  The use of television converter
boxes have resulted in very poor or no television reception at the
Shelter. The donation of a basic Time Warner cable service
that would enable the residents to have the opportunity
to watch the news and some programs would be
greatly appreciated. Please call Mary Doyle at 324-1137
or email Mary at mqdoyle@gmail.com if you can help
with either one of these needs.

Martin Luther King Jr. Day Service Project Grants Awarded

Recently the Maine Commission for Community Service challenged communities across Maine to develop volunteer service projects that unite community sectors in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Our challenge was met with an overwhelming response of 26 grant applications. We are happy to announce, the Maine Commission for Community Service, awarded 16 organizations $500 grants to implement Martin Luther King Day of Service Projects.
We encourage local citizens to contact a project in their community and take part in the Martin Luther King Day of Service. This special day of service is an important way for Maine’s people to experience the significance of service, volunteerism and collaboration amongst their neighbors. These service projects will not only impact their communities, but celebrate the legacy of Dr. King and his commitment to service, non-violence, and diversity.
