It’s Thank You Thursday!
Maine Seacoast Mission is grateful for the support of so many, including companies, volunteers, and community partners. Today’s shout-out of Mission Love goes to TREE (Transforming Rural Experience in Education) staff members Laura, Stephanie, and Maggie who volunteer at our Downeast campus every week, filling backpacks with nutritious foods that are then delivered to families from our local schools. TREE is a program of Cobscook Institute.
This is what Community looks like.
CHERRYFIELD, ME — Director of Service Programs Wendy Harrington recently announced the Mission’s collaboration with a new group called Downeast Roots; “a group of local organizations who promote each other’s work, share resources, and work together on projects for the benefit of our community,” according to the group web site.
Other member groups are the Women’s Health Resource Library, Maine Outdoor School, TREE, Mano en Mano, and the Milbridge Public Library.
The purpose of Downeast Roots is to promote collaboration among Downeast area organizations in order to strengthen our overall impact. We are committed to fostering a strong sense of belonging while ensuring that our community is a place where people, their cultural identities, and the environment thrive. We draw on the strengths of our relationships within our communities to strive towards a deeper understanding of adversity and practices that build resilient and dynamic solutions to complex, modern challenges.
