Keeping our Neighbors Warm
& Free from Hunger.
The FCS “Freeze Out” will be on Saturday, Feb. 18th, from 10am - 6pm. This is our 13th annual day of raising money for the Carol Kaplan Fuel Fund and gathering food for the FCS Food Pantry to help Freeport and Pownal citizens get through the long Maine winter.
Freezin' volunteers will be staying outside all day at 40 Main St. (First Parish Church), Starbucks, Linda Bean's and Bow Street Market (10-4) to raise awareness of poverty and hunger in Maine. We will be collecting non-perishable food and personal care items, as well as financial gifts, for the Food Pantry and Carol Kaplan Fuel Fund.
Also, from 9am-2pm, we will also be at Shaw’s Supermarket in Freeport for our “Stuff the Bus” event supported by Shaw’s and the Freeport Rotary.
How you can help:
- Stop by the Freeze-out crew with a donation and a warm smile! They'll be collecting non-perishable food or personal care items at Freeport Community Services (53 Depot Street, Freeport) on February 17th from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm or at the First Parish Church at 40 Main Street on February 18th from 10 am to 6 pm
- Make a financial gift or collect donations for Freeport Community Services. Donations may be dropped off during the Freeze Out at the First Parish Church from 10 am to 6 pm on February 18th or at FCS by 4 pm on February 17th (53 Depot Street).
- Stop by and “Warm your heart” with our volunteers during the Freeze Out!
Or, if you can't make it during those times, make a donation now.
These donations make a huge difference in our ability to support families.
