Thanks to a gift from our friends at Bessey Commons and a grant to spark a few of our volunteer projects, we could give lunch boxes and a freezpak, sturdy water bottles, quick-dry beach towels, sunscreen and bug spray for campers at Ketcha Outdoors. South Portland Food Cupboard and Scarborough Food Pantry chipped in with lots of snacks; a grocery gift card for fresh fruit, veggies, and fixings for lunches was also included.
Kids are heading back to school soon. Together with our friends at the food pantry, we'll be hosting a food drive on Thursday, August 10th to collect healthy school snacks like granola bars and fruit cups, jello and pudding cups that don't need to be refrigerated. Gift cards to grocery stores and snack baggies are always welcome, too!
The Scarborough Farmers' Market is a great place to pick up some delicious local produce, fresh eggs, baked treats, handcrafts, and more. Happening every Sunday 9a-1p at the lot in front of town hall, look for the nonprofit tent showcasing all the good going on in our town, too! https://www.facebook.com/scarboroughfarmersmarket/ In its second season, Scarborough's nonprofit tent is a join collaboration of the Scarborough Public Library, Project GRACE, and the Scarborough Farmers' Market.
