Like everything else, this year’s Spirit of Giving is going to be different. In light of pandemic restrictions, strained resources, and our desire to keep our sponsors, volunteers, and recipient organizations safe, we will not be hosting an in-person party this year, nor will we be collecting gifts for children. However, we want to do something to ensure that we are able to provide a brighter Christmas this year to as many of the 600+ children we would normally provide gifts for.
This year we have created a GoFundMe page for you to provide monetary donations in lieu of shopping for specific children. We understand that 2020 has proven to be a challenging financial year for many. No contribution is too small (or too big)! We will split all funds collected between Adoptive and Foster Families of Maine and Frannie Peabody Center. Each organization’s staff will then distribute the proceeds based on the needs of their client families, buying gift cards, ordering gifts online, etc.
For sponsors who are unable or prefer not to use the GoFund Me page, you may send checks payable to Spirit of Giving, or gift cards to major retailers (e.g. Walmart, Target, Amazon, Hannaford) to PO Box 88, Ogunquit, ME 03907.
The Committee and our recipient organizations greatly appreciate your continued support. We look forward to being able to see everyone next year for a normal Spirit of Giving party!
