All the funds raised at the Frightening 5K go directly to the 501c3 Non-Profit, One Community Many Voices (onecommunitymanyvoices.org).
OCMV provides gap funding through a model called: The Art of Good Fellowship – Paying it Forward One Neighbor at a Time.
The model creates pathways that meet people where they are to resolve a barrier related to employment/skill building, youth aspirations, elderly independent living, transportation, or well-being as quickly as possible.
OCMV is currently collaborating with Hospitality House, MCH, AIO, Rockland and Waldoboro Police Departments, Youthlinks, Knox County Community Health Coalition, Trekkers, Pen Bay YMCA, and The Shields Project.
OCMV is a place for these agencies to turn to for simple human solutions to barriers when they have no other means to help an individual that meets the criteria, a press release noted.
