Kennebunk Office Collecting Food Donations in December

Food Donations Box

Our Kennebunk office will be collecting food donations through the month of December, partnering with the Kennebunkport Heritage Housing Trust and Habitat for Humanity York County to host a Community Food Drive for Community Outreach Services. Visit the office at 150 Port Road, Kennebunk, Maine and drop off non-perishable food items at the collection box in the lobby.

Why a Community Food Drive? We believe that access to consistent food and safe housing are basic human rights. For many in Maine and right here within our three towns, the lack of either or both is a very real problem. While the missions of the KHHT and Habitat for Humanity focus on creating affordable housing, we also believe in the value of strong, thriving communities. For many, housing-related costs are often the largest expenses that households can have; and the risk and likelihood of individuals and families experiencing food insecurity is greater for those who cannot access affordable, safe housing. We know there can be far-reaching effects- on school participation, work performance, and on physical and mental health- when adults and children worry about where they will sleep or when they will have their next meal. With your help, we can make a difference by supporting our communities this Winter season.

Thank you for being a part of this collaboration as we work to strengthen our incredible communities.

Donations to Community Outreach Services can also be made via PAYPAL or by sending a check to:
