On the first day of Spring, we are feeling cautiously hopeful that we have enough in our reserves, thanks to the generosity of our friends and neighbors who turned out to support our 10th annual fuel rally in February ... but we're watchful of the prices, too ... the more they climb, the harder it is for our neighbors to afford the fuel needed to get through a cold Maine spring...and harder for us to stretch our resources, too. For the moment, we're in good shape, ready to answer the calls from our Scarborough neighbors.
PB&J - OH SO SWEET!
It's oh so sweet when friends help each other! The Scarborough Food Pantry had too much peanut butter this week, plus extra soup and mac'n'cheese. We took dozens of boxes, jars and cans to school nutrition's 'backpacks' program feeding families every week. Plus, thanks to a gift from our friends at Saco Biddeford Savings, we added 80+ squeezable grape & strawberry jelly & jams. Sweet!

ISO: CELL PHONES
Hello, neighbors! Are you planning to upgrade your cell phone? Would you have a spare we could give to a senior? We're looking for a couple of basic 4G/5G compatible models in good working order that can be used with pay-as-you-go plans like Tracphone. If so, please email firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks!
