Letter to the editor: Appreciation of support for New Hope’s Holiday Adoption program
New Hope for Women would like to express our gratitude to the wonderful businesses and individuals who recently participated in our holiday adoption program. This program has been happening for many years and elicits incredible generosity in our Midcoast communities. All in all, we had 12 different partners adopt 16 different families.
The holiday season can be a time of stress and anxiety for families who’d like to provide something special for their children, especially since many of them—even those no longer living with violence—are still struggling financially to make ends meet. Because of the kindness and support shown by these individuals and groups, 16 families could relax, knowing their children would be opening gifts and feeling the joy of the holiday spirit.
With appreciation and thanks to the following: The Alna General Store and many residents of Alna, Camden Premier Inns, Coastal Orthopedics, Correct Care Solutions, LincolnHealth-Miles Radiology Department, McCully family and friends, Mid Coast Hospital Health Information Management, Newcastle Chrysler Dealership, Time Out Pub, Winterport Women’s Club-GFWC, and two businesses who wish to remain anonymous.
