These packages and/or backpacks are filled with items to help with the winter weather such as: hats, mittens, handwarmers, socks, sanitizers and personal hygiene products. We also include a personal touch by adding homemade Valentine's from local schools and volunteers, as well as a little treat.
In addition to the individual packs we also reach out to shelters in various communities around Maine about their specific needs and try to help with those requests. Supporting the people and organizations that put in the work year-round, and trying to fill in the gaps of needed items.
Monetary donations this year will go towards our Sponsored Backpack Project, and any remaining funds will be used to complete as many individual packages as possible. 100% of funds received go to items for packages/backpacks to be distributed on Valentine's Day.

Every year we are in awe of how much support we receive and the growing number of people we get to help. Each year we have been able to increase the number of packages and our reach. Last year we donated to 11 shelters and over 600 packages/backpacks. and while this year has thrown a lot of roadblocks and obstacles the need could not be any greater.
