The Mid-Maine Sports Car Club has donated $1,500 to the Good Shepherd Food Bank, to be distributed among its member hunger relief organizations.
In the past, the club made year-end donations to backpack food programs for school children. This year, however, since the club’s summer and fall events were cancelled due to COVID-19, the treasury was in better shape than normal. Club officers decided, with so many families struggling with the fallout from the pandemic, they should make a more substantial donation this year. Good Shepherd was chosen because it’s a statewide organization that partners with and supports local food banks throughout the midcoast area.
The Mid Maine Sports Car Club dates back to 2002, when the late Jim Lea, a British car buff, called sports car owners together at Rockport’s Harbor Park. The response was tremendous, and the club has since grown to more than 100 members from Portland to Bar Harbor and inland to Augusta and Bangor. The Mid Maine Sports Car Club website is at mmdcc.com.
