During the late summer of 2019, we collaborated with several organizations and agencies to bring “2nd Chances Kids Community Closet” to five locations in Aroostook County. The “Community Closet” provided new and gently used clothing to ANY child in Aroostook County in need, free of charge.
Working with Aid for Kids, ACAP, A.R. Gould hospital, Presque Isle Housing Authority, Adopt a Block of Aroostook, Fort Fairfield Housing Authority, Fort Kent Elementary School, Mars Hill Full Gospel Assembly, and Katahdin Trust Company, United Way of Aroostook was able to provide back-to-school clothes to nearly 1,500 children in need in Aroostook County. All partners were grateful to the many donations received to make this event successful.
