We are neighbors helping neighbors. Holiday help is the original intent and purpose of Freeport Community Services: neighbors helping neighbors. Each year Freeport Community Services (FCS) with its small staff and huge cadre of 460 dedicated volunteers, shifts into high gear with our Holiday Helpline to ensure that everyone in our communities of Freeport and Pownal has the opportunity to celebrate the holiday season by providing them with the “essentials” of food, clothing and gifts for family members of all ages. If you are in need of help, want to make a donation of “essentials” or your time, or you know of someone who would benefit from these services, please call Sue Mack at 865.3985 x205
In 2011, Freeport Community Services worked with volunteers, families, local businesses and school groups to provide families in Freeport and Pownal with the “essentials” of food, clothing and gifts to enjoy a merry holiday. If you are in need of Christmas help, want to make a donation of “essentials”, gifts, adopt a family, or give your time, or you know of a family or individual who would benefit from these services, please call Sue Mack at 865.3985 x205
Join in! We provide warm, boxed Thanksgiving meals for those in need containing turkey, stuffing, squash, potatoes and anything else we can provide so that you can enjoy a Thanksgiving dinner at home. In 2011 we provided boxed meals to over 125 families. Applications are available, please call Sue Mack 865.3985 x205
We also host an annual Thanksgiving Dinner at the Freeport Community Center made possible by the generous donation of the meal by Jonas and Kate Werner of Azure Cafe located in Freeport, Maine and the many helpful volunteer hands of all ages. In 2012 we served more than 225 meals.
