Volunteers Wanted! Help Us Stay Connected Through Project ReachOut

Volunteers Wanted! Help Us Stay Connected Through Project ReachOut

Greetings from Maine,

A new Mission initiative we call Project ReachOut will play an important role in the days ahead.

ReachOut is based on a simple idea; we are all better off when we connect. A kind word and a simple “how can we help?” can make all the difference. Through Project ReachOut, Mission staff and volunteers call Mission friends and neighbors to check in, offer a word of support, and ask how we can help.

If you want to help connect, to make phone calls for Project ReachOut on behalf of the Mission, please fill out and submit your volunteer application online here. Or you email [email protected] or call 207-546-5860 and ask for the volunteer application.

Staying connected, helping out, and focusing on good people in a time of crisis. Let’s do that.

Thank you.

President, Maine Seacoast Mission

Reaching Out – This is What Community Looks Like

Reaching Out – This is What Community Looks Like

Greetings from Maine,

As my mother-in-law, Nancy, says when we’re all together as a family, “We’re making memories.” A few memories from the early days of COVID-19 will forever stay with me: a welcoming “Drive Thru” Food Pantry sign made with love; a photo of a single resilient volunteer in a well-stocked food pantry; a gallery full of resilient and helpful Mission staff on my computer screen.

Change and uncertainty are the constant in COVID world. Restrictions evolve in response to the progression of the disease and Mission programs adapt almost as quickly. What seems certain is that the new Mission initiative we call “Project ReachOut” will play an important role in the days ahead.

ReachOut is based on a simple idea; we are all better off when we connect. A kind word and a simple “how can we help?” can make all the difference. Through Project ReachOut, Mission staff and volunteers call Mission friends and neighbors to check in, offer a word of support, and find out how we can help. Sometimes the call is enough. Sometimes we can help in other ways. Always, the personal connection is important. So far we’ve made about 150 calls—150 connections—and we’ve got many, many more to make.

If you want to make phone calls for Project ReachOut on behalf of the Mission you can fill out and submit your volunteer application online. Or you may email [email protected] or call 207-546-5860 and ask for the volunteer application.

Nancy is right, we’re making memories—lots of them these days. By staying connected, by helping out, and by focusing on the beautiful response of good people in a time of crisis, we can make more good memories than bad ones. Let’s do that. I think Nancy will approve.

Mission Staff Working Apart Together

Mission Staff Working Apart Together

BAR HARBOR, ME — Maine Seacoast Mission is headquartered in Bar Harbor. But much of the Mission’s daily, ongoing work, happens elsewhere — on both land and sea. Prior to the physical distancing requirements with the coronavirus, all Mission staff met virtually at the start of each month. These meetings reinforce the Mission’s team spirit, with our Program Directors letting each other know their work priorities for the month ahead.

Adapting to physical distancing advisories, the Mission’s virtual meetings are keeping on and expanding. With many Mission staffers working now from home, virtual meetings are temporarily replacing normal sharing in the workplace.

While we miss working in the same physical space, we are grateful for the internet technology making it possible for us – and you – to be together virtually.
