Maine Needs

Drop off your quality donations, gather with friends to assemble essential care kits and help us make sure all material donations reach families and individuals who need them most.

WE ARE A GRASSROOTS NONPROFIT, POWERED BY A GROWING COLLECTIVE OF VOLUNTEERS.

We know how resilient people are, but not all of life should be about overcoming adversity. We aim to meet people on the hill they climb and ease stressors by rallying the heart of the community to provide basic needs.

We strive to help individuals and families in Maine meet their basic, material needs by providing donated clothing, hygiene products, household items, and other necessities in an environment of dignity and compassion. We focus our work on those starting life over from scratch: domestic abuse survivors, asylum seekers and those facing financial hardships. We partner with schools, caseworkers, nurses and nonprofits to provide these material resources.

Thanks to all of you, as of October 2020, we now have a free community donation center in place! It will take a few months to get everything flowing and operating the way we envision but in the meantime, we are accepting thoughtfully sorted donations. Please see our latest donation requests under the DONATIONS page.
