Maine Gladiators Give Back!
Thank you to the Maine Gladiators for their Food and Clothing Drive to benefit The Lewiston Middle School's Food Bank and The Store Next Door, a huge success!!
Currently in Lewiston there are children who hear the school bell ring at end of the day and they begin to worry about what and if they will have any food provided for them over the weekend? We are talking 7 missed meals they may not get until the bell rings again on Monday morning when they are guarantee a meal. There is a way to help eliminate this problem.
My name is Dale Forrest and I am an employee at Lewiston Middle School. I have started a school pantry at the school. A school pantry is a food pantry located within the school.The goal of this pantry is to provide food to the children in need with nutritious food, either during or outside the traditional school hours through out the entire school year. At Lewiston Middle I have kids that pick up a backpack every Friday with enough food to feed them over the weekend and also students stop by when they need a snack to get them through the day.
I am doing some fund raising to keep the shelves stock. One fundraiser I am doing is to have a raffle calendar where a prize is drawn everyday in March. So please support this program and purchase a calendar for $10.00. Stop by the main office to purchase a calendar anytime in the month of February.
Some of the calendar prizes: Spacetime bowling family fun pack-$50 value, a night at the Ramada Inn-$89.00 value, 5 chances to win $50.00 cash, a pool party for 12 at The Hampton Inn, Sparetime Glow Night bowling - $60.00 value, a night at The Hampton Inn $135.00 value, gift cards to area restaurants, 2 lift tickets to Sunday river valued at $150.00...... and more.
