We identify urgent needs in the Freeport community and the RSU5 schools and match them up with a volunteer who can help. The commitment of a volunteer can range from a 10-minute boot drop off at Pownal Elementary School to a longer-term commitment of shoveling for an elderly community member for a few weeks. A few examples of some of our recent volunteer work include: meal prep and delivery, dog walking for a sick or elderly community member, boots and mitten drop-offs at an RSU5 school, and gift card donations to a local teen in need of new clothes.
Our process is simple. We post urgent needs to our Facebook Group and we email them out to our volunteer network. A Facebook group member or a member of our email list, claims and delivers on the need at hand.
