Project G.R.A.C.E. is neighbors helping neighbors in Scarborough, Maine
With the coldest weeks of Winter upon us, families are struggling to put food on the table and keep furnaces running. To help Project GRACE raise critical funds for their heating fuel assistance program, we have been offered a challenge grant by local businessman and benefactor, Eddie Woodin, who will give the group $2,000 if they can raise an additional $10,000 from the community during a “Rally to Keep Our Neighbors Warm” at the Oak Hill Fire Station on Saturday, February 14th (9-Noon).
Free rally activities for the whole family include: tours of the firehouse and police/fire vehicles, bakesale hosted by the Pine Point Ladies Auxiliary, doorprizes and raffles, tips on emergency preparedness and home weatherization.
Enjoy storytime for little ones, displays on how animals adapt to Winter, and more! There will also be a CLYNK collection of returnable bottles and cans. Partners include: Scarborough Fire Department, Scarborough Public Library, Scarborough Marsh Audubon Center, Scarborough Police and Public Safety, Volunteers in Police Service, Rotary Club of Scarborough, Scarborough Terrace, Pine Point Ladies Auxiliary, Buy Local Scarborough, and more!!
