Annual Homestyle Breakfast supports Rockland District Nursing Association
SOUTH THOMASTON — People's United Methodist Church in South Thomaston is hosting the annual Homestyle Breakfast Fundraiser to support the Rockland District Nursing Association, Saturday, March 23, from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m..
This is a public breakfast and all are welcome.
Rockland District Nursing Association (RDNA) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit agency that provides non-acute, in-home nursing and community health services. One of only three remaining district nursing agencies in Maine, RDNA is celebrating its 90th anniversary, continuing the tradition of community nursing to meet current health needs.
The RDNA nurses annually visit 200 residents, predominantly seniors, living independently in Rockland, Thomaston, South Thomaston, Owls Head, St. George, Cushing, Union, and Warren. In 2018, the nurses drove 6,000 miles, making more than 1,700 visits.
Without federal/state funds or insurance reimbursement, RDNA relies on gifts and contributions to cover the majority of annual operating costs, focusing funds received on providing care.
“The generosity of this community allows RDNA to reach neighbors otherwise without access to these nursing services,” said RDNA, in a news release
At the fundraiser on March 23, donation baskets will be found at the entrance of the church fellowship hall; for a homestyle breakfast of pancakes, scrambled eggs, sausages, potatoes, juice, and coffee.
The suggested donation is $10/person.
People’s United Methodist Church is located at 13 Chapel Street in South Thomaston, across the bridge from the ‘Keag Store.
“Please come hungry, bring a friend, enjoy a hearty breakfast, and support RDNA in its mission to provide and promote individual, family, and community health,” RDNA said.
