Donate to Freeport Community ServicesFreeport Community Services works for all of us because of the heartfelt generosity of the caring citizens and businesses in the towns of Freeport and Pownal, Maine. The gifts of money, time, food, clothing and many acts of kindness that come from our "neighbors" are the lifeblood of the organization. You make it possible for our citizens to be fed, clothed, and warmed. We thank you.

- Paula Paladino, Executive Director
