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.
