We are a community who has always been quick to lend a hand to our neighbors experiencing a crisis or temporary setback. If you or a neighbor are a Scarborough resident and are without a paycheck because of the federal government shutdown, and need help with fuel assistance, food, or other essentials, please give us a call at 883-5111. (For resources for neighbors in other towns, call 211 Maine.)
Others in the community are ready to help, too. The Scarborough Food Pantry and South Portland Food Cupboard are a couple of the local pantries open every week to distribute food. Area banks and credit unions may be able offer temporary low-interest loans to help federal workers get by until the shutdown ends. >>MORE
